Childbirth Education

Doula support is most effective in conjunction with a comprehensive childbirth Education Class.  Since we likely won't have enough time together to cover everything a CBE class does,  I encourage all my clients to take one outside of our work together. There are many offerings available in the Bay Area. Consider your learning style when deciding on a Childbirth Education  course.  Will the basic course offered by your birthing hospital be sufficient? Are you most drawn to a series style class that allows for slow integration of material in a community of pregnant people close to your due date?  Do you want a private one-on-one session that addresses your specific needs?
