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 Google or outdated what to expect manuals.

 

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.

Custom Minis

Mini sessions can be any single class from the standard or basic series, or a custom session with your specific questions, concerns, and interested topics.  These mini sessions are great for counseling, refresher sessions, and additions when the online class is the only series you may be attending.  They can also be added on to any series for further support.
