What Exactly Happens During Childbrith?
So, you're pregnant for the first time and your midwife has recommended you take a childbirth education class. There's one offered at the hospital you plan to birth at, and there are 30 people enrolled and you're overwhelmed. Maybe you're a veteran parent and your facility childbirth education wasn't personalized enough. Maybe you're the partner or support person of a pregnant person, wondering how you can best support them and Google has too much information. Or maybe, you and your best friend are pregnant at the same time and want to take a childbirth education class together.
Sometimes circumstances disallow a family from being able to take in-person, facility-based childbirth education classes including scheduling conflicts, personal desires, bed-rest, location, etc. At Birth and Beyond, we believe that no situation, circumstance, or personal preference should prevent a family from being educated on childbirth and the arrival of their newborn. The world of childbirth education is changing, and we are staying head of the curve with our private childbirth education classes. No two births are the same and the most powerful thing about childbirth education is being in the know about the physiological process, while also understanding what may happen during your birthing experience.
Briana Smith, Our Childbirth Educator, Teaches:
ProDoula's the How, When, and Why of the Childbirth Education Curriculum, co-authored by Angela Horn. We are pleased to announce our ability to teach childbirth education in the comfort of your home! In addition, we have three venues across the Triangle that allow us to host childbirth education group classes with a maximum of 10 attendees. We chose to max out at 10 people (or 5 couples) to allow for personalized Q&A sessions. We want you to leave your childbirth education course feeling confident in knowing all there is to know!
While the curriculum used is very comprehensive, we understand that you may want to focus on specific topics. Because childbirth is a personalized experience, and no two births are the same, there are several options to choose from. You can select a 10-hour comprehensive class in accordance with your schedule, or you can pick the topics you'd like to learn about!
