Class Description

Dear new parents to be,

I am so very excited to begin my 15th year as owner of Birth And Beyond and so grateful for the many OBs, Midwives, RNs, Doulas and parents referring to me over the years. Thank You! These have been the most fulfilling years of my career and I will continue to bring you the latest up to date information from the most respected research available.

It's important for birth educators to not only understand the mechanics of labor and birth, but to identify with how labor and delivery units function. I have practiced as a labor and delivery RN for 25 years and for that reason I am prepared to help you have a better, more relaxed and informed hospital birth. Additionally we will explore tools to ease birth contractions and focus on the least amount of intervention safely possible. For those who prefer or discover the need for an epidural I will discuss and support this intervention fully. Wear comfy clothes to class, slip off shoes and have something to eat before class (yes, I show a birth film).

Classes fill quickly so please send in your registration form and fees soon after you confirm your place in class.
