Cornerstone Approach to CBE

Inclusive Childbirth Education

KIN: 5 Week Series (15 hours): 

Pregnancy Support + Childbirth Prep Group Class

in-person: $525 

This class provides evidenced based, non-biased information in an inclusive, integrative and interactive environment. Our main focus is creating 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 3 hours long for 5 consecutive weeks. 

 

KIN: 2 Part Series (10 hours): 

-Pregnancy Support and Childbirth Prep *Group Class

in-person: $400

 

This class covers most of the information covered in the 5 week series but in 2/5 hour classes. Great option for folks who can't commit to 5 weeks or are closer to their "due date" and wanting to start putting tools and techniques into practice right away. 

 

Express Class (6 hours): ONLINE!

-Childbirth Prep *Group Class 

in-person (one day/6 hrs): $250 

online option (one day/6 hours OR 3/2hr classes): $175 

This option is great for those who can't commit to the time/dates of a full CBE series but would still like an in-depth, interactive course. This option is offered online at a discounted rate and we are extending sliding scale or scholarship spots whenever possible, especially during this global pandemic. 

Additional/Refresher/Private Courses

 

* Private Birth Prep Workshop (2, 4 or 6 hours) in-studio, your home or ONLINE!

(option to add second or third class for more info)

in-person (1/2hr class): $150 

online option (option to add classes to receive full series education): $75, each 2 hour class

This private class is for birthing people + anyone who will be attending their birth.

This is a great addition to our birth series education, 

other birthing methods or as a refresher course, as it covers an intro to birth information,

stages of labor, birth preferences etc., 

with a deeper focus on tools and techniques: Massage - Acupressure - Counter-pressure - Hydrotherapy - Movement - Positioning and much more!

The online, 3/2h class option, is similar to the information that you would receive in our Express (6 hour) group class, but this private class is just for you and your partner/support team and allows you to choose what day time works best for your schedule. 
 

* Partners Pregnancy Massage Private Workshop (2 hours ) in-studio, your home or ONLINE!

in-person (1/2hr class): $150

online option: $75

 

Covid-19 has paused us from offering prenatal massage sessions right now so we wanted to offer a way for your partner or loved one to feel more confident in providing massages for you during this time! 

This workshop is designed for partners to learn prenatal massage techniques to support you during each trimester and as you prepare for your birth. 

During this 2 hour class, your partner will practice a full body prenatal massage protocol, taught by certified perinatal massage therapists and educators.

We will guide them through safe, effective massage techniques to help you relieve stress and tension, soothe sore muscles, and allow more time to connect throughout your pregnancy experience.

We offer classes for all stages of the parenting spectrum: fertility, pre-parenting, pregnancy, birth, postpartum and new parenthood.

Pregnancy

Our highly experienced certified perinatal massage therapists specialize in the full spectrum of perinatal wellness.  

Our hatch package allows you to schedule your perinatal massage sessions based around your estimated "due" date and individual needs at a discounted rate so that you can come in more often throughout this transitional time.

Parenthood 

We know the postpartum period (or early months/first year with a new babe) can be quite the transition. Hopefully, it's filled with a lot of support but it's often after the new normal has settled in, we find we still need that support and community. We offer ongoing wellness sessions for parents, as well as, support groups and community events to encourage us all to find our support systems.

"If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it-through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you came here to experience wonder and spread joy. Expect to be accommodated."

-Victoria Moran

We offer a diverse list of support for every stage; preparing for parenthood, becoming parents for the first time or doing it all over again.

We hope you find a space here to pause + recenter so you can go back out, experience wonder and spread your joy.
