Birth Journey Preparation

CONGRATULATIONS! You’re expecting, we look forward to meeting you and sharing your birth. We know you’re wondering about our birthing options, labor support and comfort care at The Birthplace. Every birth is unique and very special. Our classes are for expectant parents who are seeking information about coping skills and relaxation ideas.

We have many birthing options to learn about including: hydrotherapy, massage, visualization, birthing balls, gravity producing positions, and comfort care along the entire way.

Expectant fathers, partners, and support people will also learn how to be supportive, empowered, and involved. Let us help YOU to look forward to the birth of your baby with confidence, support and joy.
