After studying childbirth and working as a doula since 2014 I have come to the firm conviction that we should not (even unknowingly) set aside our grounding faith as we plan, prepare and grow our families. We should start out with our faith firmly grounding us and providing that anchor that can hold us steady even in the unknowing twists and turns that growing, birthing and the early stages of raising a new child can bring us through. I gained my childbirth educator certification through Lamaze in December of 2018.
Childbirth is unpredictable and has so many different possible pathways, that your childbirth education should be just as flexible.
I offer many different options for my classes. I am teaching a one-day Baby Bootcamp style class, a two-part class ‘Bite-size Bootcamp,’ this class is divided into two days in one week. Or you are always welcome to set up a private class. All my classes will cover the basics and practice comfort measures, as well as provide you with a booklet to refer back to. Each class that is taught online is recorded and you are also provided with a link to go back and watch again.
A Faith Based Childbirth Education Option
Helping to grow you closer to God as you grow your family.
“Before I formed you in the womb I know you. Before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
I offer a unique approach to childbirth education. As a believer myself, I feel very strongly about bringing our faith and preparation for parenthood together. In my classes, you will strengthen your faith as you prepare for labor, birth, and the early stages of parenting. It is my belief and hope that we set up a firm foundation right at the beginning.
Together we will cover the basics of how to know you are in labor, coping strategies, as well as cover possible interventions. The foundation for my class series are the Lamaze Six Healthy Birth Practices. You can check out all the different avenues for taking my classes here. It ranges from private in-home to group classes at multiple locations.
Discover the strengths and tools that we have and prepare for the birth of your baby. Empower yourself with the knowledge and faith boost that this class will bring.
