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

  • breastfeeding/bottle-feeding

  • neonatal protocols and preferences

  • newborn care

  • 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).
