Childbirth Education

Classes offered through Real Deal Birth and Parenting!

I have partnered with my colleague Amanda Wyszkowski to form Real Deal Birth and Parenting! Our childbirth preparation classes are designed to help you learn about the physical and emotional aspects of birth, learn pain management skills for labor, and become familiar with potential medical interventions and medical pain management so that you can make informed decisions for your birth. Birth can be unpredictable- you never know what’s ahead!

Available classes:

Prepared Childbirth (Hybrid) a series of four 2 hour sessions for first time parents covering all the essentials to help you prepare for birth. Recommended for 1st time parents and their partners.

Breastfeeding and Newborn Care (virtual) a 2.5 hour combo class to give you the best start to feeding and caring for your newborn.

Preparing to VBAC (private virtual or pe-recorded) a 2 hour class designed to prepare families who are planning to have a vaginal birth after cesarean

Labor Skills Refresher (in person, private virtual or pre-recorded) a 2 hour class designed to refresh your labor skills for a 2nd or 3rd baby

NEW! Planned Cesarean Birth (pre-recorded or private) 1.5 hour session designed to prepare for a planned cesarean birth and postpartum.

I also teach a virtual 4 week series through Any Baby Can called Be Ready for Baby for those on a budget. This class covers all the basics of birth, postpartum and early newborn feeding and care.

You can also find me teaching Reality Childbirth Classes through St Davids Healthcare at the Women’s Center of Central Texas!
