Two Doulas Birth designed our childbirth classes to give you the information, skills, and confidence you need to have an empowering birth experience. Using a non-dogmatic, practical approach, we prepare you for your baby’s birthday and life with a newborn. Certified doula educators teach each dynamic, discussion-based series. They incorporate their local doula experience with the best tools from childbirth education methods like Lamaze, Bradley, HypnoBirthing, Hypnobabies, Birthing from Within, etc. Classes are tailored to the needs and interests of each participating group of parents. Our goals are to help you understand the birth process, iron out your birth preferences and coping techniques, and know when to let them go. We will help you develop confidence in yourself, your partner, and your care providers, so you feel prepared to welcome your baby.
Topics covered include:
- anatomy and physiology of labor
- how to prepare prenatally for the birth process
- comfort measures for labor including breathing techniques, massage, positioning, visualization, hypnosis and more
- medical interventions and pain medications discussed in an evidence-based, non-judgemental fashion
- the basics of postpartum recovery, breastfeeding and newborn care
We provide you with a comprehensive manual that reiterates the concepts we teach you in class and gives you additional information to read. You will also get access to our Two Doulas Birth YouTube channel with videos reviewing our techniques, tons of community referrals, and outside reading suggestions. We also offer monthly community events to help you create a support network during your transition into parenthood. Our classes will provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions for you and your family. We recommend you take our class in your third trimester of pregnancy. If our public class options don’t fit your schedule or due date, please review the information on our private class page.
