Childbirth Education

Jody Swank

Birth can be beautiful and empowering. On occasion, it can also be surprisingly hard with lots of unexpected twists and turns. I prepare families for normal, natural birth but also give them the tools they need to make good decisions and adjust expectations if medical intervention is needed. My goal is for families to have a birth journey that empowers them and leaves them feeling strong and centered. I offer two options for classes:

  1. Private in-home classes scheduled at your convenience; or,

  2. Weekend group classes offered each month.

I offer in-home childbirth classes scheduled at your convenience. A curriculum is followed, but plenty of fun and laughs will be shared along the way. Knowledge is key. The more you know, the less you fear and the more relaxed and focused you will be. I employ creative techniques in helping you to understand your birth experience. I assist you in building a birthing plan of your choice. We will practice several relaxation techniques from a variety of methods. We will practice positions and comfort measures that your spouse can be involved in such as using a rebozo. I will help you feel confident that you are fully prepared for both the expected and the unexpected.

Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis is a method of childbirth preparation that teaches medical hypnosis techniques, creating an automatically peaceful, relaxing and more comfortable pregnancy, a calm and confident Birth Partner, and an easier and much more comfortable natural birthing for mom. Hypnobabies is well-known for helping women to create much shorter, easier and more comfortable labors, making childbirth the joyful experience it was meant to be. A very comprehensive childbirth education curriculum also helps parents to feel confident about the process of birth, understand what to expect, and make the best decisions for their family along their journey. Couples leave the series feeling prepared, excited, and empowered for their upcoming birth.
