Prenatal Education

Fun, comprehensive & interactive classes to prepare you to have a positive pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience!

99% of first time expectant parents tell me the same thing: “I’m nervous and scared for birth”.

 

Sound familiar? 

 

If so, you’ve landed in the right place. Stork to Cradle Prenatal Classes will take you from nervous to excited, scared to confident and underprepared to ready

 

Whether you plan to birth at home or in the hospital, with a Doctor or a Midwife, these classes will teach you everything you need and want to know (in a way that won’t put you to sleep 😉).

Chose which option fits best for you!

Group Traditional Prenatal Education Classes (No Hypnobirthing)

One of the worst experiences in childbirth is being completely caught off guard by what labor is like and on top of that being presented with decisions you didn't know you'd have to make (and don't know how to make).

 

Group Traditional Prenatal Education Classes truly prepare you for labor, birth, and early parenting. You'll learn everything you need to know to make informed decisions, be an active participant in your birth and remain as calm and confident as possible.

Group Traditional Education Classes + Hypnobirthing Add On

Learn everything you would learn in a traditional prenatal education class plus the amazing tools of Hypnobirthing.

 

HypnoBirthing prepares soon to be parents to have a calm and stress-free birth experience with a proven approach of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualization and affirmations.

 

With this option, you will attend the traditional group class and then receive one extra hour of hypnobirthing guidance and practice.

Private Traditional, Hypnobirthing, or Mixed Classes 

Prepare for labor, birth, newborns, and postpartum in the comfort of your own home.

 

This is a great option if your schedule doesn't line up with class times or you prefer a one-to-one experience. 

In private classes you can choose the number of hours of learning, the topics covered, and more.

 

This is the most convenient and customizable option.
