Private Classes in your home
Some insurance companies will reimburse for childbirth classes or you can use your HSA
During these classes you will learn about pregnancy, labor, and birth, postpartum and breastfeeding. Knowledge is power!
We will discuss what is normal, and what is not. I will help you understand what are the best evidence based practices during pregnancy, labor, and birth. You will learn about the hormones of labor and how they help you and your baby. What helps them flow and what stops them. We will watch videos and discuss what labor feels like and how to help the contractions do their job. I will help you learn to listen to and work with your body. You will learn comfort measures, relaxation. Ways you and your partner can work together as you become parents. We will also discuss different support options including how a doula can enhance and improve your birth experience and help your partner best support you.
I will help you plan and prepare for your first few weeks home with your baby.
My classes are fun, interactive, and evidence based.
I teach classes in our home in Berwick. I also teach private classes.
All those attending classes have access to my extensive library of books and videos.
Lamaze Healthy Birth Practices
Comments from Lamaze class attendees
I always left Virginia's Lamaze classes feeling educated and empowered. She provided excellent visual resources and ample opportunities to practice comfort measures that helped ease the pain of labor. When my water broke at home, I felt calm and prepared because of the Lamaze healthy birth practices. Virginia's class and doula support gave me the confidence to have the natural childbirth that I wanted.
I found myself becoming knowledgeable about the natural process of birth and our rights as both patients and parents. She gave us tools to communicate respectfully our wants and wishes during pregnancy and at the hospital during labor and birth.
