Over the past two weeks as we have experienced a significant adjustment in schedules and responsibilities with many schools closing, locations where adult classes are held closing, gatherings being limited and halted all together, support people and visitors being separated from their loves ones while in labor and birthing...
I along with many other educators have taken the reigns to figure out what we can do to provide safety, calm, comfort, and empowerment during the COVID-19 crisis. Many childbirth educators and doulas have begin to switch to online streaming and online platforms since we know, as do laboring people and their partners everywhere the benefits of birth classes.
Thank goodness I work for Evidence Based Birth® and was able to be on the ground floor of getting the full series up online while maintaining the interactive quality of our class. Our fearless leader, Dr. Rebecca Dekker saw this crisis coming and we hopped on a call together and decided to get the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class fully available online right away. I also was able to set up live streaming and online components for all my other birth and postpartum classes - Labor of Love, Demystifying Your Hospital Birth, Path to Parenthood - that are not just the pregnant mama and her partner looking at screen.
NO ma'am and sir.
Through the online streaming and online classes, Birth Freely is still able to give you community, empowerment, mentorship, and live assistance in your class. So instead of staring at a computer screen, talk to me! Ask me questions! Let me point out where to place your hands for counter pressure, where and how to massage, how to breath and maintain calm during labor for both the laboring person and her partner. Let's role play advocacy scenarios so that you get the information you need and so you have your best birth.
Can you do this without a birth class? Sure. But do you want you want to? Check out this pdf about why birth classes are important. Why they can actually be necessary to reduce your fear and empower you beyond that scary birth story you heard from your friend. This experience WILL transform you. Take a class with Birth Freely and let it transform you for the better.
If your class was canceled, you can sign up now. If you want to social distance, you can sign up now. If you are pregnant due in the summer, sign up for the virtual experience and we can transfer your ticket to the in person class when we are all back in action after the crisis is over. *The ticket transfers will be first come, first served since we can only accommodate so many people in the classroom comfortably.
What are you waiting for? Learn from your own home with your personal mentor, your personal expert, right there to help you. Check out the classes being offered via live stream now.
