Self Paced Learning

Do you want to get all the information you need to have a well informed, empowered birth? But you also still want to ask questions have an instructor that will answer those questions should have any? Maybe you work off hours and attending a live class in the evening or on the weekends isn't possible for you.  

Then our self guided learning videos are a great option for you.  These videos will walk you through our standard prenatal classes and we will be able to answer any questions you may have after you have viewed a portion of or all of the class.  

Programs Available

 

Hospital Packing List Discussion - Free

One of the biggest questions I get in prenatal classes is, "What should we take to the hospital?" The internet is full of lists, so many lists of what to pack.  However, one is why this particular item? Well I've created a short video to go over in more detail what we recommend you bring with you to your birth.  This video will also come with a printable list of what is discussed, as well as a printable list of What To Eat during labour.  

Birth Planning Discussion - Free

"What is a Birth Plan?" "Do I even need one?"  "I've heard the hospital staff doesn't look at them."  "I've heard the hospital staff laughs and throws them away."  Have you heard these comments about birth plans? As a veteran birth coach and hospital based childbirth educator, I can tell you the staff does look at them.  And I do think you need one.  Birth plans aren't rules for your birth, but discussion points with your care provider, and a guide for your support person on what is important to you in your birth.  It's an education tool to use to learn all about what you may face in your birth. 

This video comes with a printable example of a birth plan.  If you have more questions or need more support in preparing a Birth Wish List, we have a birth planning session available to help you plan your birth and make your birth wish list for just $50.00.
