Thanks for your interest in my childbirth classes in Sacramento! I'm a certified childbirth educator in Sacramento and an almost life-long resident. I have my childbirth educator certification through ICEA and I've taught childbirth classes for the last five years. Because I work for two local hospitals, I have educated tens of thousands of couples, many of whom wanted to go unmedicated (natural) and many who wanted an epidural. I teach classes on pregnancy, birth, babies, breastfeeding, safety and multiples to both adults and young adults.
Childbirth Educator, Writer, Website Designer, Owner of Sacramento's BabyStop and TheOnlyBabyStop
Before I became a childbirth educator I was a labor and postpartum doula and helped over 50 couples. I love teaching what I learned during those two years both to expectant couples and other birthing professionals. Because I have a doula background, I have a unique perspective from many other childbirth educators. I know how to help women get through labor and birth! I strongly believe in teaching partners how to support a laboring woman because the birth goes better and she's less annoyed with her partner after the birth for not "helping". :) I also believe women should have a "good" birth experience, whether that means going unmedicated or getting an epidural. I don't care how she gives birth, as long as she feels it was a good experience.
In addition to teaching, I'm also a writer and have a book coming out in 2012 for men about supporting a laboring a woman (more on that later). I'm also the owner of Sacramento's BabyStop and TheOnlyBabyStop. Finally, I have twin boys moving through elementary school. And I have a wonderful husband who supports me through all of my ideas.
I'm so excited to be offering private childbirth classes in the Sacramento area. Learn more about the classes we offer here at Sacramento's BabyStop.
