Are you ready to take that next step? Esali Birth's Pre-Conception Workshop is for couples ready to start their parenting journey. This includes pre-marriage exploration and newlyweds to anyone in (or supporting) the childbearing years. You'll get an overview of fertility awareness including the basics of recognizing ovulation signs. The series will focus on health and wellness so that your pregnancy and birth has the best start possible to staying healthy and empowering. You'll get introduced to the many choices you have for care providers and birth locations which helps to reduce stress during the pregnancy (especially the last trimester when many couples are first learning about their options). Couple relationship building will be detailed with information regarding perspectives that will make your breastfeeding and parenting an empowering experience beyond the cultural limitations of modern life.

We welcome TTC and other non-expecting students into our standard perinatal series. However, couples in their pre-conception phases are at a different point in their journey and often find benefit from private pre-conception classes, or within a group experiencing similar current events. Ask your instructor about possible discounts for future perinatal series if you join a pre-conception class.
