WELCOME TO ONE WITH CHILD

Serving and Educating Families Since 2004

Why take my Childbirth Prep Class?

My 3 Week Series is designed for couples to deeply connect to one another and to have a positive birth experience. Couples learn how to be prepared for birth, both physically & mentally. Discover comfort & coping techniques through relaxation, breathing, movement & use of a rebozo. Learn evidence based information with lots of visual aids and learning techniques. We discuss commonly suggested interventions, how to make informed decisions, and how to respectfully advocate for your values and preferences. Based on my 13 years as a Master Educator the goal of my classes is to build your confidence, reduce your fear and deeply connect with each other, your body and your baby.

Why have a Birth Doula?

Having support from a doula, a childbirth educator and a mom who understands the birth process is pretty awesome! I have such fond memories of conversations with my doula. As your doula I provide continuous emotional and physical support to you and your husband/partner during labor, birth and early postpartum. I listen to your needs, support your choices and keep you on track. Being an evidence based educator I am able to explain the details of any interventions that the doctor or nurse may be suggesting and help you advocate your preferences.  As your doula I don’t replace your husband/partner but am there to enhance the experience and allow him/her to enjoy it without all the pressure.

GetFit BeFit StayFit

Being a former dancer and now a competitive athlete I know what it takes to get ready for the marathon of labor! My sessions are fun, educational, and motivational. You will feel great after each session. Being fit and staying fit during pregnancy will also help you shed those pounds quicker after baby is born. Let me help you get in shape for pregnancy, stay in shape during pregnancy and get back in shape after baby.
