The Birthsmarter Childbirth Education Course DOES NOT include Newborn Care, or The Lactation Class 

Childbirth Education Format Details: the childbirth education series is lecture based in class one (Labor + Delivery) with ample time for hands on practice in Comfort + Coping and Push Prep. 

Why Online? 
Our Live-Online classes over Zoom are ideal for expectant parents who are interested in accountability, live instruction, and having the opportunity to ask questions and participate in discussion with a small group of other parents. We have been working for three years to create dynamic and engaging virtual courses. 

    When should I take Childbirth Education?
    Ideally, you would take these classes between week 28 and week 34. Some clients start as early as week 24 and others find us around week 38. It’s never too early and it’s never too late! 

      Wait, why are Labor + Delivery 101, Push Prep and Comfort + Coping sold separately elsewhere on the site? We also offer these classes Á La Carte for folks who are only interested in one or two subjects. For example, we've had clients take a traditional birth class elsewhere and feel disappointed that there was no hands-on practice or acknowledgement of the pelvic floor and want to supplement their education with Comfort + Coping or Push Prep. Others may be looking for a refresher course for baby #2 or #3.

      99% of the time, we recommend first time parents take all the classes together instead of choosing individual subject matters (because #context matters.) The sections feed into each other and are all equally important. 

      If finances are a concern:
      Please reach out about Alternative Pricing.
      We work to ensure that no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

      The price includes attendance for two people. Additional people (your mom / doula etc) can be added for $50.
