Gillian uses her background of teaching various modalities of childbirth education for the past decade, combined with a strong love for current research, to look beyond method-based approaches and instead bring something completely focused on actual education.
That’s right. Childbirth Education that’s about educating you.
What is a Comprehensive Childbirth Education Series?
In this comprehensive class, we explore the myriad of topics you expect, including: nutrition, positions, labor stages, anatomy, coping skills and strategies, breathing, and partner support.
Then, we also delve into the intricacies of mental imagery, the emotional (i.e. hormonal) component of birth, as well as postpartum preparation and recovery.
This includes exploring what the difference is between an intercession and an intervention. That is, we’ll explore epidurals, inductions and augmentation, and family-centered cesarean births.
Therefore this class is appropriate for homebirthers and planned natural births alongside planned medicated or high-risk births. You’ll make friends in a supportive environment without judgement to birth labels and instead focus on your birth outcome.
You can also add a 5th class, the Breastfeeding Basics Class.
The Breastfeeding Basics class has also been designed based on research into best possible outcomes, with a great amount of input from years of students, by an IBCLC (Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant).
