The Birthsmarter Childbirth Education Weekend Intensive was designed with busy soon-to-be-parents in mind. After teaching thousands of parents, we know that there is no way to predict how your labor will unfold. Deeply rooted in education theory and mindful pedagogy, this class goes far beyond the basics of what to expect when you’re expecting. The Birthsmarter Weekend Intensive will prepare you to think critically and improvise, in labor and in life.LEARN MORE
