Childbirth Classes

One Day Intensive Group Class in Brooklyn. Private childbirth classes can be scheduled in the comfort of your home at any time.  All classes are designed to give you a base of working knowledge about the broad spectrum of the birth process.

Private Childbirth Classes


Private classes occur in your home and cover the topics that you are most interested in learning about. Prior to the class I will send you a list of topics to help you focus your interests and choose what you would like to discuss. This is a comfortable, time-saving and intimate way to learn about the birth experience. Rarely does the class go over three hours.

Sibling preparation, VBAC and refresher classes are also available.

The cost of private instruction is $125/hour.
I will also teach small groups in your home for $85/hour per couple

One Day Intensive Group Childbirth Class

This small group class gives you the opportunity to take in a lot of information about birth, lactation and newborn care while connecting with other new parents-to-be.  Typically we cover the following material:

  • The signs and stages of labor
  • When to call your doctor or midwife
  • When and how to get to the hospital or birthing center
  • What  you can do during a contraction
  • Positions, massage and pressure points
  • How your partner can help
  • What to pack in your “Go Bag”
  • Why or how would you hire a doula?
  • Narcotics and epidural anesthesia
  • Induction
  • Interventions and complications
  • The basics of baby feeding
  • Basic newborn care
  • How to manage the postpartum period

There is no way to predict how your birth will be and there is no way for us to give an exact outcome. Our goal is to provide you with a variety of possible scenarios and an expanded vocabulary of birth so that you can go into the experience knowing that there are some choices to be made and, based on the material that we will cover in class, you will be well prepared to make them.

The cost for this one day intensive childbirth preparation class is $350 per couple
