          Natural Childbirth Education Classes

"Giving birth should be your greatest achievement
not your greatest fear." 
Jane Weideman
This is not your typical childbirth class! We will cover a wide range of topics, 12 units of instruction, relating to pregnancy, birth, post-partum and parenting. An example of topics that are covered in depth include nutrition, prenatal postures to condition the body for birth, anatomy and physiology of pregnancy, labor and birth, relaxation and visualization, stages of labor and techniques to help progress through them, birth planning/birth preferences, supporting the laboring woman, breastfeeding, and care of the newborn. You will receive all the information necessary to be an informed consumer, making the most appropriate decisions for yourself and your baby. You will learn to trust and surrender to your own inner wisdom. Women were born to give birth! Relaxation practice is incorporated into each class. Classes can be taken at any time during your pregnancy, but it is best to have the series completed by 37 weeks.

~Fall 2015 Natural Childbirth Group Series to be announced soon!  Classes meet for 12 consecutive weeks, typically on a weekday evening, from 7:00 - 9:30 PM at my home in Saxapahaw.  The fee for small group classes is $325. 

~Private classes are always available.   Please contact me for specific details.  We can easily work out a mutually convenient day and time to meet - this is a great option for those with busy, alternating schedules.**

Fee (for both private and group classes) includes student workbook, folder with handouts, access to my lending library. 

TERMS: A non-refundable deposit of $50 is due in advance w/ registration form to reserve your space in class. The balance is due at first class, or may be broken into payments, with full payment made by the final session.  Payments may be made by cash, check or money order.  Please place cash payment in an envelope with your name on it.  No refunds will be given/full payment is owed to Amy Gribbin after the first class session.  No refunds will be given for any missed sessions. 
If you have a true financial hardship, please contact me to discuss alternative arrangements – I am willing to work with you and do not want to turn anyone away who is truly committed to a natural birth.
