Two Doulas Birth offers a comprehensive refresher class to give you the support, information, and skills to prepare for the birth of a second baby or beyond. Using a non-dogmatic, practical approach, we prepare you for your baby’s birthday and welcoming your new baby. A certified doula educator who is also a mother herself teaches each dynamic, discussion-based series. Developed specifically for busy parents, our refresher class is a one day intensive and is tailored to the needs and interests of each participating group of parents. Our goals are to help you understand how the birth process changes with second and subsequent births, process your previous birth experiences, and gain confidence to bring your new baby into your family.
Topics covered include:
* anatomy and physiology of second births and beyond
* special considerations for parents planning a VBAC
* preparing for the birth process with other children at home
* a review of comfort measures for labor
* how to work with your previous birth experiences
* a review of postpartum recovery, breastfeeding, and newborn care
* sibling support and integration
We provide you with a comprehensive manual that reiterates the concepts we review in class, access to our Two Doulas Birth YouTube channel with videos reviewing some of our techniques, tons of community support and referrals, and outside reading suggestions. We also offer monthly community events to help you create a support network of other parents as you welcome your baby. We recommend taking our class in your third trimester of pregnancy. If our public class options don’t fit your schedule or due date, we also offer private classes.
