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 content.
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 and 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.
I took a class with Lara and Cote on preparing for postpartum. I was very happy for the experience! I loved that the class was hands on and individualized to our group. I even got some goodies to take home. This class really helped me think about the postpartum period and what my needs might be. The ladies are very professional but down to earth and easy to relate to. I felt very comfortable talking about childbirth. I would recommend any of their services.
Lara came out to our home for a personalized natural childbirth preparation course. I was happy about the flexibility and willingness to tailor the class to the needs of both my husband and I. She also taught us how to do some helpful labor positions with my birth ball and coached my husband through the process which was so helpful! Lara is also a great listener and addressed some of my biggest delivery fears and questions. We both feel more confident and prepared to expect all of the unexpected with the birth of our first son!
Go to their workshops. I learned so much from Cote and Lara. They truly carry a wealth of knowledge between them and have a genuine passion for supporting families. The postpartum workshop I attended was great because it was specific, covered important topics, and gave us hands-on activities for great postpartum care. Looking forward to future workshops by Holistic Family Doulas!
