Perhaps some of your friends and family members are sharing their birth horror stories. Or maybe you've found yourself up late more than one night googling "natural birth videos." You might be asking yourself, "What will it be like for me?" Facing the unknown can be scary and frightening but birth does not need to be mysterious and you don't have to go it alone.
The Baby Mavens have selected the best ideas and techniques from a range of childbirth traditions to provide expectant parents with modern, practical education and evidence-based techniques to help them feel prepared for childbirth and new parenthood. Our comprehensive class covers everything from prenatal nutrition to pain relief techniques in labor to tips to prevent tearing. This class is a blend of lecture, videos, demonstrations, and hands-on practice that will leave you feeling confident in your ability to meet the challenges of labor and parenthood. There is no right way to labor or give birth. We teach the full range of options available to women and their families as they prepare for birth. After years of experience working with mothers and families, we know that what is most important is that you approach your labor feeling confident, capable, supported, and relaxed. Through our course you will learn what to expect, develop skills to help you cope with labor, and get the essential information to need to respond to the unexpected.
