Thoughtful Birthing – Summer Series

  • Monterey Birth and Wellness Center (map)

This six-week comprehensive series is the complete package.  Our discussion-based content provides the knowledge base that you need.  We explore natural childbirth, helping you identify the "steps toward success", considering the importance of support and a peaceful environment on the birth process.  We highlight the importance of a healthy lifestyle during pregnancy, and provide tools for achieving the healthiest pregnancy possible.  We provide a breakdown of the stages and phases of labor, to help you understand the process and prepare for your experience.  Comfort measures and an in-depth "labor rehearsal" round out this class.  We help you navigate unexpected situations, identify preferences, and communicate with your birth team.  Lastly, postpartum recovery, basic breastfeeding, well-baby care practices, and newborn needs are discussed in the final class of the series.  Woven throughout the series are hands-on activities, strategies to respectfully advocate for yourself, and mindful pain-coping practices.

Price is $300 per family. If you need financial assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Payment arrangements are available.
