10 Week Course
The Birth Boot Camp course is designed to teach couples nutrition, safe exercise during pregnancy, relaxation skills, better laboring positions, and so much more; I really work hard to make sure both partners are confident and prepared no matter how they choose to birth! Classes are taught over a 10 week period and generally last about 2 hours. It is best to start classes at the 25th week of pregnancy, or sooner.
Class 1-the history of childbirth in America and why a natural birth is a great option for baby and parents
Class 2-nutrition and how to eat for a healthy and strong pregnancy, the importance of relaxation exercises
Class 3-choosing where to give birth to your baby, questions to ask your provider, choosing your support team, benefits of chiropractic care
Class 4-understanding tests and procedures during pregnancy, final preparations before birth!
Class 5-what to expect physically and emotionally during every stage of labor and birth
Class 6-especially for your support team-how to best encourage, help, and care for Mom during labor
Class 7-the sounds of birth, what you will see, and the best positions to labor in
Class 8-preparation for unexpected circumstances and how to avoid unnecessary interventions, VBAC
Class 9-writing the birth plan, working as a couple to choose your wishes during labor and postpartum
Class 10-enjoying your new baby, attachment parenting, strategies for sleep, breastfeeding and bonding

Not to worry parents; this is a fun way to help siblings prepare for the birth of their brother or sister! In this 1 hour, hands-on course we will talk about: where the baby grows, what is happening during labor, how to be Mom's helper, and how Mom will feed and take care of the baby.
I will come to your home where your child is most comfortable and will tailor the class based on age. We can discuss everything prior to my arrival so that you are comfortable with what I will cover. Includes a small workbook specifically for younger children. Please email me for details.
Investment: $35 for one new sibling learner, $10 per additional sibling (to cover workbooks)
