PRIVATE CHILDBIRTH CLASSES
Comprehensive Prenatal Classes from a Lamaze Certified Professional
The birth experience can affect the health of both mother and child. It is crucial to understand the key elements that will impact this precious experience for you and your baby. At Birth Latch Love, we promote a six-step plan to a healthier birth. Spoiler alert: There’s no weird breathing technique. Just solid, evidence-based practices to walk you through the natural biological process of giving birth.
Our private childbirth classes are based on the Lamaze Six Healthy Birth practices:
Let labor start on its own
Change positions throughout labor – walk, move around, be active
Have a loved one, friend, or doula at the birth for continuous support
Employ medical interventions only when absolutely necessary
Follow your body’s natural urge to push, and don’t lie flat on your back
Don’t separate mother and child at birth – the connection is essential for mother, child, and breastfeeding
If you want the safest, healthiest delivery possible, these are the rules to live by. Your private childbirth class will cover each of these topics, explain why they are so important, and outline how you can apply them when the time comes for your baby to enter this world.
Once you have a deeper understanding of the natural biology behind giving birth, you will find yourself in a better place to confidently make informed choices during labor and delivery.
Please keep in mind that only private classes are offered at this time. Your home is an important scene for early labor! Educating and training in your own environment will help you identify and utilize all the resources available to you. However, you also do have the option of online sessions.
