We offer different options for Childbirth Education classes!
Inclusive Childbirth Education (both of our series classes are considered FULL CBE)
KIN: 5 Week Series:
- Pregnancy Support + Childbirth Prep
This class provides evidenced based, non-biased information in an inclusive, integrative and interactive environment. Our main focus is helping to create more positive, supported birth experiences where you feel cared for, informed, powerful and whole regardless of birthing location, birth preferences, decisions or family dynamics. Connect with your support team and other folks and families preparing for birth over the course of your time together and create a support network for your postpartum and parenting journey! Each class is 2 hours long for 5 consecutive weeks.
KIN: 2 Part Series:
- Pregnancy Support and Childbirth Prep
This class covers the same information covered in the 5 week series but in two, 5 hour classes. This class is typically on a weekend with a couple weeks in-between each class. Great option for folks who can't commit to 5 weeks or week day evenings and it's also great for anyone wanting to start putting tools and techniques into practice right away.
1 Day Express Class:
This option is great for those who can't commit to the time/dates or cost of a full CBE series but would still like an in-depth, interactive course in this one weekend day, 9-3pm express class.
