From Pregnant to Parent

Navigating Your Labor and Childbirth

Understand your options, prepare for a wide range of scenarios, and build your confidence regardless of where or how you plan to give birth. Birth is a natural, physiological event that many people have come to fear as a major medical procedure. We fear the pain, the unknowns...and even pooping on the table. I designed this course to help you understand your options, address those fears, and build your confidence. | WE'LL DISCUSS: Preparing for a Safe and Satisfying Birth - Signs, Symptoms, and Complications - Asking Questions, Making Decisions, and Being Your Own Advocate - Managing your Labor and Non-Medical Coping Techniques - Common Interventions: Pros and Cons - The Immediate Postpartum Period | YOU'LL RECEIVE: Two days of live, instructor-led classes from the comfort of your home - A set of printable handouts, including a Birth Preferences form and Birth Affirmation cards - Access to a private From Pregnant to Parent Facebook group

Mindfulness Based Childbirth & Parenting

Preparing for giving birth and having a baby is one of our most profound moments in a person’s life. The benefits of mindfulness are now widely communicated, and learning mindfulness during your pregnancy — that is, the awareness that comes from learning to pay attention in the present moment, on purpose and non-judgmentally — can help you before, during and after the birth process. Whatever your intention around the use or non-use of pain medication during childbirth, Mindfulness-Based Childbirth & Parenting (MBCP) provides skills for the mind and body to support you and your partner throughout the birthing process and way beyond.
