CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION

At Carriage House, we have culled our shared birth and postpartum experiences and training to develop a strong, interesting and fun classroom experience. We believe that it is best to fill your birth tool bag with as many options as possible, therefore we teach what is most useful and use what we feel are the best elements from the various laboring methods that are out there today. Whether at home, in a hospital or birth center, we believe that good birth outcomes happen when fear is replaced by confidence, understanding of the birthing person’s body and the very normal experience that is pregnancy and childbirth.

The Carriage House Birth Intensive Childbirth Education class is a 10 hour, one weekend (Saturday, Sunday) commitment. It offers families the same full curriculum as the six-week version just condensed.

Class covers but is not limited to:

✩  Anatomy and Physiology
✩  Hormones during Pregnancy and labor
✩  Stages of Labor
✩  Signs of Labor
✩  Pain Coping strategies
✩  Different Breathing techniques for labor
✩  The role of the partner / Dad class

✩  Pain medications for labor
✩  Newborn procedures following birth
✩  Newborn Care Techniques
