Information

The sheer amount of information available around birthing can be staggering and overwhelming to try to sift through. We’ve done all the reading and the research so you don’t have to and distilled it into an interesting, engaging, and, dare we say, fun classroom experience. Drawing on both notable texts and teaching and our own long and varied experiences as birth workers, we aim to fill your birth tool bag with the essential information about laboring methods applicable in hospital and birth center or home settings. Information is power and we believe that reframing the birth process as a normal human rite of passage, instilling a deep understanding of the birthing body, and swapping fear-based narratives with confidence leads to the best birth outcomes. 

 

The Carriage House Birth Childbirth Education Express class is a three-hour commitment. It offers families a streamlined express class.


Class covers but is not limited to:


+Stages of Labor

+Signs of Labor

+Pain Coping strategies

+The role of the partner

+What to expect from your birthing location

+Pain medications for labor

+The postpartum body
