voted best childbirth class in new orleans
Contemporary birth education for the modern family.
Amanda is now teaching an exciting and updated curriculum.
February 19 and march 7
This is a comprehensive 6 week birth course that will prepare you for any type of birth you are planning. Not only will both you and your partner be prepared physically, mentally and emotionally for labor and birth. Even if you're not sure that natural is the route for you, you will learn how to reduce your risk of interventions and cesarean birth.
This is a course with a focus on physiologically normal birth, coping techniques, etc. We feel this is best for EVERY birthing person - even those planning for an epidural or a cesarean birth. During labor, most everyone experiences some contractions and it is best to be prepared for everything.
We also cover interventions and cesarean births. Because being prepared is best. Preparation doesn't increase risk - it only makes it more likely you will have a wonderful birth experience.
The course fee is $300 and includes 12+ hours of practical, heart felt, hands-on, and fun classes. All classes are taught at Play and Grow Studios in the Broadmoor Arts and Wellness Center at 3900 General Taylor, New Orleans. We meet at 6pm and finish class between 8:30 and 9.
