Class Summary

My childbirth classes are taught over 5 weeks. Each class will be  1.5/2.5 hour classes, depending one how many questions you have. We will be reading Ina May’s Guide To Childbirth as reference throughout class. If you are starting class closer to your guess date and we are concerned with timing, I can make special arrangements for a more express class for you.
