ONE-ON-ONE BIRTH CLASS TOPICS

WHAT MAKES YOU QUALIFIED TO TEACH CLASSES?

I love teaching and mentoring. I am an Advanced Birthing From Within Mentor with 10 years of doula experience behind me, as well as some midwifery studies. I have helped hundreds of families in pregnancy, birth, and postpartum as an educator, doula, and/or birth assistant. My first passion is to help families with the transitions that come with parenthood.

BIRTH CLASS PACKAGES

Live Birthing From Within Birth Class Package

This is the traditional Birthing From Within Childbirth Series to help you prepare for birth and beyond. It is a 5-part (10-hour) class series that can be every week or every other week in your home, with completion by your 36th week of pregnancy. This class is ideal for first-time parents in the Kansas City area, looking for an education that goes beyond the basics of childbirth. If you would like to host a class in your home with 2 or more other birthing persons, your rate is discounted in half.

Class Series: $350.00

Online Birthing From Within Class Package

This is an online version of my Birthing From Within Childbirth Series to help you prepare for birth and beyond. It is a 10-hour class series that can be at a frequency you prefer in 1-hour increments via Google Hangouts or other online meeting technology, with completion by your 36th week of pregnancy. This class is ideal for first-time parents that are not local to the Kansas City area and do not have local Birthing From Within Mentors leading classes in their area or those who are on bedrest, looking for an education that goes beyond the basics of childbirth. 

Class Series: $200.00

Individual Sessions (live or online)

Could you use some support or mentorship that is outside a class series? You can book me for individual sessions if you are in the Kansas City area or beyond. Some examples of sessions I do are birth refresher classes, birth partner sessions, birth trauma healing, birth art sessions, postpartum, or infant-feeding support sessions. If you would like to host a session in your home with 2 or more other birthing persons, your rate is discounted in half (does not apply to online sessions).

2-hour in-home session: $90.00

1-hour online session: $25.00

HOW DO I BOOK A CLASS?

Please fill out this form and I will reach out to you to set up a free phone consultation to discuss what you think your needs are. During that conversation, I will suggest an educational path for you if you haven't already decided.

If you need to develop a class package outside of what is listed above, we can totally do that. Don't forget to check out this FAQ page before our call. It may answer a lot of your questions! When you have decided on a path, I will send you dates and times I am available for sessions. We will confirm those dates through Google Calendar invites. Currently, my session availability falls on Monday and Tuesday evenings, as well as 2-3 weekends per month (Saturdays & Sundays). Exceptions can be made.

Clearly defined deposit, payment structures, and any possible additional fees will be described in our agreement to work together.

Childbirth classes usually involve a mother and her birth partner or doula, but sessions for individuals are great as well! I love mentoring all kinds of family structures, so please don't hesitate to let me know what your needs are.
