Virtual Childbirth Education and Specialty Classes. As a certified Lamaze childbirth educator, I work hard to support your goals and visions for labor professionally and compassionately. Providing tips for physical and emotional comfort, as well as a wealth of evidence based information, allows you to be in control of your birth choices. All women should feel safe and respected during birth. I believe people deserve the truth. "Standard practice" or "hospital policy" are terms thrown around a lot in the birth industry. What my classes offer is current, evidence-based science and research regarding safe and normal birth. I am a natural pain management expert. My Pain Relief and Comfort Measures Class is a one time, hour and a half focused learning session. During our time together I will teach you and your support person practical ways to ease pain during labor. A recent study found first-time mothers who took childbirth classes that focused on complementary pain management were 65% less likely to use an epidural and had a 44% reduction in the need for cesareans. Also available is my full Private Lamaze Childbirth Corse: Three two-hour sessions.This is not your mother's Lamaze class. Once recognized only as breathing techniques for labor, Lamaze is now the leader in evidence-based childbirth education with a mother-centered focus. Knowledge reduces fear, and less fear reduces pain. All classes can be arranged to fit your schedule.
