Frequently asked questions
Will taking a prenatal class ACTUALLY benefit my birth?
Absolutely! Research shows prenatal classes can increase confidence for labour, improve communication with your care provider, decrease need for pain medications in labour and increase satisfaction with birth. This course guides you through a proven method to help you feel informed, supported and confident during labour and birth = a radiant YOU!
What if I'm getting the epidural? Is taking a class necessary?
It definitely is! Feeling informed and prepared is important however you give birth!
Will my partner benefit from the classes?
Definitely! Your partner will learn about how to be the best support to you during labour, practice hands-on massage and comfort techniques to help you cope with contractions and gain confidence as a birth partner. Expectant parents even report feeling more connected with their partner after taking prenatal classes!
When is the best time to take prenatal classes during my pregnancy?
It's recommended you start the live classes no later than 32 weeks of pregnancy, so that you can be finished before 36-37 week of pregnancy. If you want to take the classes earlier in your pregnancy, that is also totally ok! and has lots of benefits, including; more time to go through and process the information and to practice the techniques and positions you learned. You will have access to the recorded classes for as long as you need to, so you can re-watch anytime!
I can't afford the classes. Do you offer flexible payment options?
Always! There is sliding-scale pricing available. You can choose whatever fee works best for your family ($75-$300) based on the green bottle method. There are also scholarships available. Please email me at email@example.com to register.
I am single (or giving birth by myself) Can I still take the classes?
Of course! These classes are for everyone! You will learn lots of techniques to help you get through contractions and even some self-massage techniques. You are also welcome to take the classes with a friend, family member or support person. If they are unable to join you in-person, they can join the class virtually from their own home.
