LGBTQ+ Prepared Childbirth Classes

As a community we face particular challenges to obtaining information about pregnancy that relates to our experience. By utilizing a queer childbirth educator, your learning experience can be more personalized to meet your needs as queer parents-to-be, in a space where your safety and comfort are of the utmost concern.
LGBTQ+ prepared childbirth classes will explain the anatomy and physiology of the third trimester, labor and delivery, the different stages of labor, pain management techniques, hormones of labor - what they do and how, basic information about common medical interventions and cesarean birth, and what to expect in the postpartum period, including basic information about newborn care and various options for feeding your baby. Plus anything else pregnancy related you may wish to know!
These classes are meant for pregnant folks planning for any birth setting, at home, in a birth center or in the hospital, and will cover information on all options in a non-biased way. Classes are open to you and your partner(s), friends, family members or other support persons, and we encourage you to bring as many or as few extra folks as you are planning on having present for your birth.
It is the aim of these classes is to address not only practical medical information about pregnancy, labor and the postpartum, but to do so in a space where there is an awareness and celebration of multi-faceted gender identities and expressions, sexual identities and relationship structures.
These classes are scheduled according to client demand, so get in touch today!
