These classes take place over the span of 1-2 meetings (more classes can be added to cover additional topics! We want you to feel confident for your upcoming birth). These are tailored specifically to your pregnancy and preferences. Whether you are planning a natural birth, medicated birth, or are unsure, these classes will help you weigh out all your options and increase your knowledge of what to expect during labour. These private classes are held in your home (or live online if you prefer!) with either Alannah or Samantha and could cover:
What to expect during birth
Comfort measures to use during labour
Breathing techniques and labour positions
Common medical procedures and interventions
Writing a birth plan
Postpartum, breastfeeding, and new infant care
Anything else that you have questions about!
*Please note: the custom classes are included as part of our Doula Services package!
This private series is for those interested in Bradley Method® but unable to make it to our group class. Traditionally it is a 12 week course for those couples desiring to have a natural birth. As a private series, we can cover all the material in 8-12 classes (up to you!) and will hold the classes based around your schedule. During this class you will learn:
Exercises and nutrition for a healthy pregnancy
Labour positions and relaxation techniques for maximum comfort
Ways your partner can be a great labor support/coach
Complications that could arise and how to handle them
