“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.” Barbara Katz Rothman
We offer a few forms of comprehensive childbirth classes as well as some addendum classes to enhance your preparation. We teach in Atlanta, Roswell and Athens.
Wisdom for Birth – a unique approach to comprehensive childbirth preparation classes. A full day couple’s class. More than your average childbirth education, we explore what a holistic approach to birth means. We discuss the different stages of labor and how to identify them, how to move through labor gently and what tools may be helpful. This workshop is infused with wisdom, filled with practical tools with hands on practice and facilitated by Teresa Howard with over 25 years of experience in birth work. A second class is a new offering for 2018- a women’s only 6 hour workshop, More BOLDness . Teresa includes many BOLD mindfulness preparation tools and includes movement from her training with BOLD, Spinning Babies and Dancing for Birth. We offer these classes in both Atlanta at the Birth Center as well as in Athens.
The Fundamentals for an Empowered Birth is a couple’s comprehensive 12 hour class. It is taught by Renee Wymer over two weekend afternoons. The curriculum goes beyond just the basics to help you integrate basic information with hands-on practice, use of videos, class discussion and fundamentals tools to help you achieve the birth experience you desire. Renee uses evidenced based information for a lively discussion. Renee also teaches our Breastfeeding Class.
The Mind Body Series is offered by Charlotte Scott. It includes The Still Point, Mindful Birthing –a couple’s workshop and Infant Massage. She takes her more than two decades of being a body worker with her experience as a doula to infuse these classes with tools you will be able to use to have a gentle birth experience and transition to parenthood. Ask about the discount when you sign up for all three in the series. She also teaches an optimal fetal alignment class, Aligned and Ready that is best taken as early as possible in pregnancy.
