Occasionally I will be offering childbirth classes and posting the information here.  Feel free to pass on the information to others.

I’m starting up a series of childbirth classes starting Jan 21 or Jan 28
(depending on the response) from 1-4pm.  They should last only an
hour each.  The course outline is as follows:
Week 1: Late pregnancy, onset of labor, early labor
Week 2: Active labor and delivery
Week 3: Interventions, variations and pain meds
Week 4: Postpartum, breastfeeding and newborn care

The cost is $100.  I include lessons on essential oils for pregnancy,
birth, recovery, and infants as a part of the class.  If you just want
one class that is more tailored to your needs, I can do that for $20 a
class and I can meet whenever, where ever you want.  I will also offer
a class strictly on pain medications during birth for those who
desire.  It is designed to be 45m and is 15$ a course.  The purpose of
this course is to help pregnant women and their partners understand
causes of pain in childbirth and pharmacologic options for pain
management.  It will also provide an opportunity to review coping skills
which may be used in labor and birth as well as ways to minimize the
side effects of medication.
