Childbirth Education

Childbirth Education

Joyful Start Childbirth Education prepares parents for a more positive, empowered birth, whether in hospital, birth center, or home. Much more than a hospital childbirth course that may prepare you to be a good patient, these courses prepare you for what to expect during your pregnancy, birth, and your time home with a newborn. You’ll leave with a deeper understanding of your body and your baby, a toolbox of comfort measures to use in labor, and knowledge of how to navigate and advocate for your birth choices to have a more positive, empowered birth.

Private, in-home classes: customized to your needs and schedule

Looking for a complete program for healthy pregnancy, birth, a better postpartum, baby care, and breastfeeding/chestfeeding?
