Childbirth Education

Village Birth’s childbirth class gives you the information, skills, and confidence you need to have an empowering birth experience. Using a non-dogmatic, practical approach, we prepare you for your baby’s birthday and life with a newborn. Doula educators teach each dynamic, discussion-based series while incorporating their local doula experience.

Our goals are to help you understand the birth process, iron out your birth preferences and coping techniques, and know when to let them go. We will help you develop confidence in yourself, your partner, and your care providers, so you feel prepared to welcome your baby.

Childbirth Education Los Angeles Topics:
– Anatomy, physiology, and stages of labor
– How to prepare prenatally for the birth process- mind, body, and soul
– Comfort measures for labor including breathing techniques, massage, positioning, visualization, and more
– Medical interventions and pain medications discussed in an evidence-based, non-judgmental fashion
– Postpartum recovery and the transition into parenthood

Join us prenatally to get a solid foundation and tools to thrive during the immediate postpartum. This space is designed for the birthing parent to connect on the unique experience of carrying and birthing a baby.

Some topics we will cover:

  • Hormones and how to work with them
  • Support, family and guests (oh my!)
  • Physical changes
  • Healing
  • Preparing your space
  • Nutrition
  • Baby wearing
  • Postpartum gadgets and tools
  • Design a postpartum plan
