Childbirth Class Benefits

Childbirth classes provide you with empowering information while providing you with more time for enjoying your pregnancy and birth.

A perinatal mentor provides parents with experience, resources, and care through this journey to parenthood so you don't have to rely on Dr. Google or outdated what to expect manuals.

In the American culture, childbirth classes are vital to a positive birth experience for both the mother, child, and family through perinatal education and support (pregnancy, birth, postpartum).  There are many factors that affect the health and well-being of the mother and child, and responsibility is one of the most important.  Esali Birth is here to provide you with a variety of options to obtain the information you need for your best birth.

Childbirth classes provide confidence for you to make choices that support the birth you want

Independent Childbirth Classes are unaffiliated with hospitals and medical practices allowing you to learn ALL your options - home to hospital.  Childbirth classes are structured to support your desire for a healthy and happy birth, wherever your journey takes you.

Private Childbirth Classes provide the perfect setting for couples to feel uninhibited about discussions of their specific experiences and more time for discussion; however, group classes and workshops are available as well.

Esali Birth encourages our Standard 10-Session Series, but offers multiple series lengths including condensed reviews and single mentoring sessions.  From pre-conception through breastfeeding, Esali Birth is your full perinatal doula support and education choice.

Taking an EB class was the best thing I ever did for our family! Not only did I become far more educated than I thought possible about birth (there was so much I would've never learned otherwise) but it opened up a door to meet so many other moms, in my area, that I can connect with.
