Holistic Family Doulas is proud to offer mothers and families affordable and accessible options for childbirth education. Throughout the year, we offer group workshops in the western suburbs of Chicago so we can prepare you for both before and after birth. In addition we can customize individual options in the comfort of your own home.
Customized Childbirth Class
4 hour, private, in-person workshop
Are you looking for a class on childbirth that is comprehensive and conveniently fits in your schedule? Parents love this option because they can fill in gaps that may have been missing from their own education or classes and you name the time, place, and topics we discuss.
Holistic Family Doulas will customize a childbirth education class based on your needs and interests. You will be given a list of topics to rank and a course will be put together just for you.
During these courses, parents will receive education on the pregnant body, physiology and comfort measures, informed consent, how to have a physiologic birth, hands-on work that go over positions and comfort techniques for labor, breastfeeding tips, birth hormones, creating birth affirmations, and postpartum and newborn care.
This class is conducted either in downtown St. Charles or in the comfort of your own home.

It Takes a Village
In previous eras, pregnant women and their families had the support of their entire communities. Today, we are often geographically separated from our families and disconnected from our communities. At Holistic Family Doulas we want to create a bridge between the conveniences of the modern world and the interpersonal connections of forgotten eras. We seek to provide a safe, relaxing, and nurturing experience for women and their families. Whether you’re pregnant and preparing for birth or navigating the challenges of infertility, we’ll be your village.
