Many families find it helpful to take childbirth education classes before the birth of their baby. Childbirth classes teach families about what to expect during labor, comfort measures for labor, information about interventions, newborn care and breastfeeding.
Not every family is able to attend a childbirth class series that spans five or six weeks, and some couples are looking for an experience that offers more privacy than traditional classes. If you are looking for out-of-hospital childbirth class, CNY Doula Connection instructors are skilled in tailoring classes to each family's needs and schedule.
Private Childbirth Class
In our private childbirth class format, one of our doulas comes to your home or you and the doula select a location together. During the one-day class, you will
be able to cover the class material and ask all of your questions about pregnancy, getting through labor, birth, and breastfeeding.
Semi-Private Childbirth Class
In our semi-private childbirth classes, two or three couples join together for a childbirth class. One benefit is a reduced cost for each couple. Couples are given the opportunity to email their concerns and questions to the instructor prior to the class, which adds personalization to the learning experience.
