Reno Childbirth Classes

Empower yourself for a better birth experience with Reno’s most popular and comprehensive birth class.

Are you ready to feel confident about your birthing journey? My goal is empower you and your partner and guide you through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I have provided childbirth education to over 400+ expecting couples in the Reno/Tahoe region and I’ve created a curriculum where we’ll break down each phase of labor while enhancing your self awareness and guiding you through various techniques for relaxation, so that you can effectively utilize various comfort strategies to manage the challenges of labor without relying on medical interventions. I emphasize the idea that childbirth is a normal, natural process by empowering women and their partner with adequate resources and assistance, you can navigate labor without resorting to common medications and interventions.

Upon completing the course, you will acquire a comprehensive set of skills essential for ensuring the optimal beginning of your baby’s life and the well-being of your entire family.

When should I start taking classes?

For the most maximum benefit I recommend starting my classes between 28-30 weeks of your pregnancy.

  • Common Interventions- how to avoid them, what to try instead, and when they become medically necessary.
  • Physical and emotional signposts during labor
  • 3 hour Breastfeeding class taught by an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) 
  • Postpartum recovery

How much does it cost?

Investment for the 7-week class series is $550 per couple. Week 5 will include a 3-hour breastfeeding class taught by an “International Board Certified Lactation Consultant” (IBCLC). The cost also includes a workbook, notebook, & handouts.  I am also available for phone and/or email consultation should you have questions at any time.
