Loving Birth Workshop
If you want to expand your knowledge about the child birth process then our class is for you. You will learn about the actual process of birth, birth art, labor comfort, and relaxation techniques. We offer this as a group and in the privacy of your own home. The workshop generally lasts approximately 3-4 hours. We encourage that this class be attended by the pregnant mom and her primary support person (who ever will be with her during the delivery).
Our 90 minutes prenatal consultations are a great way to give an expecting family an extra boost of confidence. During the consultation, you will learn some tips & tricks for coping with labor and effective ways to communicate your desires to your care provider. These consultations are especially beneficial to families who are not planning to hire a doula for their upcoming birth.
Do you need an extra hand during your pregnancy? Your antepartum doula will be there to support you every step of the way. She can help you with the following:
Grocery shopping & errand running
Assisting with sibling care
Educating the family with baby care and feeding methods in correlation with the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics
Light housekeeping (ex: laundry, loading/unloading dishwasher, wiping down appliances)
Answering the telephone & greeting guests
Meal & snack preparation
Dynamics change as a family expands. This is a fun and interactive workshop for big brother or sister to be. It is designed for ages 2-12. We understand that children learn through play and hands on activities. During this class the children will be able to express their feelings about mom being pregnant and welcoming the new baby. They will learn what the new baby will look like, sound like, and feel like. They will also learn how to bond with the new baby and ways help out momma. Each workshop is designed to accomodate each family's needs and wants.
Even families who wish to birth privately, without a doula attending their birth, can still benefit from prenatal support. Our prenatal support package includes:
A prenatal visit where we will go over your plans for birth and give you tips for managing your labor
Phone and email availability to answer any questions or to help you find local resources
A short postpartum visit
Belly casting is a great way to document the time you spent carrying your little one(s). Many people use them as a "bowl" as decoration on a dresser or table in the nursery. Some people choose to mount and hang them on the wall. Whatever you choose to do, you won't be disappointed, this keepsake will last a lifetime. Included in this session is a special time of pampering.
