BirthWorks Multi-Week Session
Are you looking for a class that will gradually prepare you for childbirth?
BirthWorks is a birth class that provides you with extended time for you and your partner to prepare and build your confidence for birth. BirthWorks seeks to facilitate a woman’s or a couple’s personal process in childbearing, not to impart a preconceived method of labor and birth. There is not one right way to give birth; each birth is unique.
The curriculum is either a 6-week condensed, or the traditional 8-week curriculum, which means you'll make friends with other parents, and you're set for future playdates!
BirthWorks will help you learn about risks and benefits of medical intervention, and give you the knowledge to feel confident for your birth.
"My husband and I definitely enjoyed the class. We appreciated that we were able to really make the class tailored to the scenario we are planning and have all our questions answered. During the discussion periods, Stephanie also got us talking about things we had not even thought about. She was fantastic and we felt really comfortable. I am very happy deciding to take this class as opposed to a class in the hospital - felt very personal!" - Katie M.
"Thank you for giving me a sound mind, hard body and open heart! "❤️ - Courtney, Arlington, VA
