Did you know there is a secret menu for your labor care?  In this class we begin to work on your birth plan.  I go over common practices, why they're followed, the risks and benefits of each and finally, I give you the secret menu!

This class is jam packed with all of the evidence based information you will need in order to make informed decisions about how you birth and about your newborns care in the hospital.  By the end of this class you will have a birth plan that fits your family.  You will be able to discuss your choices with your birth team and your provider.  Most importantly, you and your partner will go into labor feeling like you know the answers no matter the twists and turns your journey makes.

This was extremely informative for me, especially as a FTM. Bea is precise and to the point, her energy is amazing & it didn't feel like I was watching a monotone class course. I really appreciated the PDF's that were attached in the courses, so my husband and I could have that additional reading information in case we forgot something. Thanks!
