What students have to say about Birthing Baby Naturally
"I now feel that I'm ready to birth my baby naturally! This class is exactly what my husband and I needed to get prepared for labor. Giselle was wonderful! I feel confident because I got all the tools and information I was looking for." ~ Marcela
"The Birthing Baby Naturally Weekend Intensive was incredibly helpful and unique. It provided a wealth of information to me and my partner in a short amount of time that fit our schedules. Giselle provided an array of tools, techniques and practical decision-making skills ranging from birth positions and breathing to how to feel empowered in birthing in a hospital. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in birthing natural, but wishing to be educated and prepared for all possibilities that can happen during the birth of their child." ~ Diana
"This class sure helped me wrap my head around the intense process that is about to happen. We would never have been as prepared as we are after completing this class. Thank you!"
"Very safe, friendly environment, empowering couples/moms to make their own informed decisions. Thank you!" ~ Julie
"This is not only a great class for expecting mothers, but also soon-to-be fathers! It provided me a real appreciation for what my wife has to go through and how I can be helpful during this amazing event." ~ Jason
It's recommended to take the class (whether it's the series or the weekend intensive) sometime during your second trimester ideally though we've had couples in their third trimester as well!
The next Weekend Intensive will be August 10-11 2013
There are currently no weekly series scheduled.
Spaces are limited so we encourage you to register soon.
What's the difference between the 5 week series and the weekend intensive class?
Both our 5 week series and our weekend intensive class are both 12 hours and cover the same exact information. However, the 5 week series meets on Thursdays at 7pm - 9:30pm and our weekend intensive is during a Saturday and Sunday for 6 hours in each day. Couples in the weekly series will enjoy getting to know each other better and reviewing much of what we learn. However in the weekend intensive class couples will have fun while learning all about childbirth during a weekend, so it works better for those who can't do weekly series.
The Birthing Baby Naturally™ Childbirth Education is geared to the pregnant mother and her support person whether it'd be her partner, husband, wife, boyfriend, family, friend.
