Good Birth Class Online with Lisa
Do something extraordinary for yourself. Take a completely customized, evidence based birth class from the comfort of your own couch. We meet on Zoom where we can all see and speak with one another. Together, with a small group of other first-time parents, we’ll get clear about what you need to have the birth that is just right for you!
You can wear what you want, eat while we work, let your dog out, meet my dogs (Peace and Baloo) and use your own bathroom.
Sounds pretty great, right?
“What month in pregnancy should we take Good Birth Class?”
I figure, the sooner you start learning about the birth process, the sooner you can start discussing what comes up for you with your care providers, get clear around what you need and how to best set yourselves up to have that in place.Click for what we’ll cover
