Childbirth classes are offered privately in your home or in the Wilkes Barre area as well as in Ringtown, Pa. 

 

As your instructor I strive to help you head into your birth feeling confident and prepared for a variety of ways that your birth may unfold. I am always available to answer your questions and make sure you have all the information you need to make the best decisions for the birth you are preparing for. When you and your partner prepare together you can be sure that you will have all the tools you need to be supported during labor and birth.

 

If a live class is not an option for you then consider taking a Birth Boot Camp class online!

 

With each class description be sure to flip through the samples of the beautiful book you will receive with your class. If you would like more details of the topics covered in each class series, use the contact form below to request a PDF for a more detailed chart.
