Intuitive Birth Child Birth Education (Add On)

Intuitive Birth’s Childbirth Education Class is unique in its approach to empowering parents. Rather than pushing an agenda about how birth should be—e.g. unmedicated or medicated, in a hospital/home/birth center, and so on—Intuitive Birth teaches expecting parents essential information to prepare them for having a baby, regardless of where and how they choose to give birth.

This class not only informs parents about the intricacies of childbirth: it also helps them discover the kind of birth they want. Ultimately, birth may take unexpected twists and turns that deviate from a birth plan, but the Intuitive Birth Childbirth Education Class is designed to help parents navigate the evolving process with confidence and essential information. 

Some highlights include:

  • Physiology of Childbirth. How the body, mind, and hormones work together and how you can capitalize on your body’s power.
  • Birth Setting. Comprehensive information to help you know what kind of birth and setting you want, and how to advocate for yourself.
  • Providers. Understand the differences between providers (OB, Midwife, in hospital, out of hospital) and determining which provider is the best fit for you.
  • Managing Expectations. Learn about the reality of birth and how to be prepared in any setting.
  • Signs and Stages of Labor. Recognize the stages of labor (early labor, active labor, transition, pushing), signs of labor, and know when it’s time to go to the hospital or birth center.
  • Trusting Yourself. How to build trust in your body for childbirth and nursing.
  • Epidurals. Understand the pros and cons of epidurals and learn how to use them wisely, including other forms of pain management (both medicinal and non-medicinal).
