As a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, I can help you have a safe and healthy pregnancy and birth. Lamaze is based on the best medical evidence. I will encourage you to be an active participant in your maternity care. You will understand what is happening during your pregnancy and learn what to expect during labor. The classes present birth as a normal process. You will discover how to work with your body to have a safe and satisfying birth. If you are looking for a low-intervention birth, these classes will be excellent preparation.
Topics discussed include:
I offer private and small group (3-5 couples) childbirth classes. The classes can be in addition to doula services or on their own. A discount is available for moms who hire me as a birth doula and take childbirth classes with me.Small group classes cost $135 and meet weekly for 5 weeks for 2 1/2 hours. A discount is available for a couple willing to host a small group class in their home (in Evansville or Newburgh). Private classes cost $225 and last 2 hours and meet 4 times.
Group Classes will begin:
August 7, 2013
I make an attempt to find a day of the week that works for all class participants. If a posted day of the week does not work for you, let me know. We may be able to switch days. Usually, group classes meet one night a week for 5 weeks from 6:30-9pm. Call or email me to ask about specific times.
Select the topics you need- Refresher for Childbirth, Vaginal Birth After Cesarean, Comfort Measures, or come up with your own. These classes are private classes and are $25 per hour in 2-3 hour blocks.
To register for a class, print this registration form and mail it with a $25 deposit to the address listed on the form.
Some insurance companies will reimburse for the cost, or part of the cost, of childbirth classes. Check your plan to find out if yours is one that will. Another option is to use funds from a Flexible Spending Account through your work if you have one available.
