Breastfeeding Prep Class

breastfeeding prep class atlanta

Taking a Birthing From Within, non-judgemental approach to the sometimes complex breastfeeding relationship, this class covers the whys and hows of breastfeeding. We also explore available options as your unique breastfeeding journey evolves.

This is a hands-on class – you will practice with dolls for positioning, see optimal breastfeeding on video, and engage in lively interactive discussions.  A birth partner/attendant is encouraged to attend. As a bonus, once your baby arrives, we offer FREE support by phone or video chat if you have questions or concerns about feeding.

COST: $95
The birthing parent may include one support person/partner at no additional charge.

Balanced Body for Birth

balanced body workshop

In this class, you will learn why baby’s position is important and actively practice methods to:

  • 1 Align the uterus so baby can curl to enter the pelvis, small and compact – and be a more active participant in birth
  • 2 Release tight ligaments or muscles which may pull or twist, possibly relieving pelvic pain now, unnecessary discomfort during birth or a long labor
  • 3 Learn and move through smart and comfy ways to sit, rest and sleep well during pregnancy

As birth workers, we see a HUGE difference in birthers who understand this process BEFORE labor begins and take steps to align the body during pregnancy. This is a partners class and a birth ball and rebozo (or other long cloth) are needed.

A PDF handout with descriptions and drawings will be provided.

COST: $75
The birthing parent may include one support person/partner at no additional charge.

Birthing Again Workshop

This 7-hour, two-session series is for parents who have taken any type of childbirth preparation with a previous birth. The first three hours is for birthing mothers only. The next day there will be a separate one-hour session for birth partners. These separate sessions help participants, both birthing mothers and partners, to gently unwind previous birth stories and prepare for a new and different experience, helping everyone view birth with a fresh perspective.

Immediately following the partner session birthing mothers will join for the remaining 3-hours. In the couples’ portion of class, birthing mothers and partners will dust off pain-coping skills and create time to focus on THIS birth and THIS baby. While learning ways to integrate the new baby into the existing family, we pay special attention to helping siblings with the transition.

Enjoy this time together as you take a breath and connect with your growing family.

COST: $175
The birthing parent may include one support person/partner at no additional charge.
