Carriage House Birth strives to provide our community with current and relevant classes that will nourish a variety of learners and prepare families for birth, infant feeding and more.

We have achieved this by staying abreast on current evidence based information and coping techniques as well as our culled collective hands on experience as a bi-coastal doula agency.  Through this model, we guide our students through their own epic journeys into parenthood.

All of our classes are fully inclusive.  Please email us directly at info@carriagehousebirth.com if you would like to give us a heads up on your preferred pronouns.

Childbirth Education

Description:

At Carriage House, we have culled our shared birth and postpartum experiences, current evidence based information 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 and understanding of the laboring person’s body and the very normal experience that is pregnancy and childbirth.

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

 

Class covers but is not limited to:

* Anatomy and Physiology of Pregnancy and Birth
* Physical and Emotional Stages of Pregnancy
* Physical and Emotional Stages of Labor
* Pain Coping Techniques – from visualization to hands on, water and beyond
* Birth Plans and Birth Planning
* Pain Medication Options
* Labor Support–who to have at your birth
* Interventions and Induction
* Cesarean Birth
* Your Postpartum Body and Life

This Intensive is $400 PER COUPLE!
