Childbirth Classes

1

I am currently offering private, in home childbirth classes in Tacoma and Seattle. This is a great option for personally tailored education for you, your partner and support team. I am a certified childbirth educator through ICEA and teach with their philosophy in mind, “Freedom of choice based on the knowledge of alternatives.” Your class is tailored to suit your birth wishes and learning style. It will also include broad information and tools/ techniques so you will be prepared to make the best decisions for you and your family during labor, birth and with your newborn.
