We strongly believe in the importance of parents preparing for birth together, as a unified couple. To that end, we will do our best to relay pertinent information in a way that both moms and dads appreciate. As we like to say, "When it comes to birth, ignorance is not  bliss." And though "bliss" may be too strong a word to describe your experience in a childbirth class, we are committed to making you laugh while helping you learn a ton. So, grab a cup of tea and a comfy seat and  join us!

In a New Creation childbirth class, you will have the unique experience of learning about childbirth from a holistic perspective. Not only will you have the opportunity to discuss the physical process of birth, but also the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects involved in your journey to deliver your baby. 

We have class options for first time parents and for more experienced parents in either  private or group settings.

Childbirth Education Options

12 Hour Full Class

Ideal for parents who've never attended a thorough birth class, we spend time on the normal birth process, and how to peacefully respond to the challenges of birth. Our emphasis is relaxation and comfort measures, but we also address postpartum care, breastfeeding, and even new baby care. This class is included in our Birth Doula Services at a significant discount.  We want you to leave with your birthing tool bag packed and your heart filled with peace as you look forward to your birth. Here is our upcoming class schedule.

12 Hour Full Class: $250

breastfeeding/postpartum Class: $50

The New Creation Birth Services birth class prepared my husband and me so well for labor. While the class focused on preparing you for natural birth, we also thoroughly covered the different medical interventions that you might want/need. Instead of teaching one "right way" for labor and delivery, Susanna focused teaching us how to think through the risks and benefits of all options. I felt empowered to make informed decisions concerning my labor. In addition to the class material, it was fun to meet other expectant mothers and fathers. We learned so much from others asking questions we hadn't yet thought of asking.
