I am a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE), with additional training in birth hypnosis,
and will gladly share my commitment to healthy, fulfilling births with you.
Drawing upon evidence and current research, a passion for physiologic birth, a strong commitment to informed decision making, and my experience as a doula, I provide 8-9 hours of private birth education to expecting women and their partners.
Divided into 2-3 sessions or one lengthier day, my class allows expecting parents to schedule their birth education for a time convenient to them, in an intimate setting, tailored to their particular hopes for and circumstances surrounding their birth. (See below for lodging and birth ed combo.)
Join me in my home in the woods, and delve into the following aspects of childbirth, while enjoying sweet pets and yummy food:
stages and phases of labor
physiology and hormones of labor
when to go to the hospital or birth center
comfort measures and positions conducive to labor
informed decision making
potential restrictions and interventions
various pain management techniques
neonatal protocols and preferences
emotional and physical adjustments postpartum
I offer birth education for expecting parents who'd like to spend
two to six days in our guest cottage in the woods.
Mother and partner will receive their customized birth education
in a beautiful studio cottage, surrounded by a rolling lawn, gorgeous woods,
and local hikes, restaurants, exhibits, and shopping.
Combine private birth education with a serene getaway within two hours of NYC.
Please book your visit through Airbnb,
then e-mail me directly to schedule the specific hours of your birth education during your stay.
Lodging payment will be made through Airbnb, with a $25 discount/night offered upon booking, and education fees are paid to me via check or PayPal (also discounted $50).
