Labor and Birth Overview

Online birth class options allow you to participate in a full perinatal series (pregnancy through postpartum) in the comfort of your own home... or coffee shop... or park!  All you need is internet access. Esali Birth's Online Labor and Birth Overview is a 2 hour seminar covering the final weeks of pregnancy through labor, birth, newborn care and birth partner tips.  This course is an excellent crash birth class, review birth class or for continuing education for doulas and birth educators. This online labor and birth class is self-paced and enrollment is available for a full year providing you with time for review from early pregnancy through birth.  This course makes an excellent addition to mini private birth class mentoring sessions.  This seminar is included with the standard Esali Birth Class.

Now I feel like this awesome crazy machine that does all kinds of cool things! LOL!
