My Childbirth Education classes are designed to connect the couple as a unit. A portion of the classes focus is on preparing the father. Being well informed and taking personal responsibility for the birth experience is a necessary part of a midwife attended birth. Over 100 series of 7 childbirth education classes have been taught at New Life.
I am very experienced in water birth. If desired, we have tubs that you can rent to take home to labor or birth in.
I strongly recommend breastfeeding for mother and baby but am experienced in bottle-feeding as well. I support the choice of the family but will always recommend you attend a series of La Leche League meetings before birth.
