I have spent the almost all of my adult life reading, studying, and delving into all things birth. I am convinced that there is NO ONE WAY. All birth philosophy have a place and things to offer. Learning to cope (vs suffer) is my basis. Understanding enough about the process to not be afraid is a tenet of class. I take from all birth voices and roll them into an all encompassing class.
There is a time and a place for everything. Sometimes, an epidural is absolutely the thing that is called for. We will talk about all options (including medication). Taking a "less is more" approach when it comes to birth, things can sometimes get more complicated when medications become part of the picture, but not always. Each birth is unique.
Typically, classes are 4-8 couples
I have called NG home for the past 20 years. I love this town. After zooming for the past 3+ years while the world went on hold, I found myself at a crossroads. zoom is a great substitute but, In person birthing classes are where it's at. After a lot of searching and thinking, I decided to offer a birthing retreat. Come to the darling, little Swiss town of New Glarus, emerce yourself in all things birth, spent some time together shopping and/or lunching in New Glarus. Feel prepared, renewed, connected, ready!
