5-Steps to a Better Birth- $100

In this class, Jessica will show you and your birth partner the five most important things you can do to ensure a better birth experience. They don’t call it “labor” for nothing. It is hard work! Training for labor and delivery is one of the most important things you can do for your body from day one. Preparation is the key to reducing fear and achieving a peaceful, confident, and safe birthing experience.

This class is inspired by a chapter in the “Your Birth Experience” Parent Guide.  Jessica wanted to create this particular course because this information is not likely taught in your average childbirth education class.

This workshop is taught privately in your home and takes approximately one hour and does not need to be purchased if you are taking one of the YBE childbirth education courses. This class is also offered ONLINE via Skype for those outside of the NYC/NJ area!
