Frenk And Danielle Kaufmann from dreamtime.

I am thrilled to be a Lamaze International Childbirth Instructor.  

Do childbirth classes matter?  It has been found that taking childbirth classes facilitates:

  • increased communication of overall health decisions

  • better communication with partner

  • better relaxation and stress management skills

  • healthier lifestyle behaviors

  • increased birth satisfaction, even when the birth didn’t go as hoped

  • feeling more prepared for a second or subsequent delivery when the previous birth was upsetting
