Fundamentals on Childbirth:
Birth is normal, natural, healthy, & safe.
Women have an innate ability to give birth.
The experience of birth profoundly affects women and their families.
Women's confidence & ability to give birth is enhanced or diminished by the care provider & place of birth.
Women have the right to give birth free from routine medical interventions.
Birth can safely take place in homes, birth centers and hospitals.
For starters, I received my Lamaze Certification in a small Amish town called Intercourse, Pennsylvania. I currently teach Lamaze Childbirth Classes in Jacksonville, Florida. I am married to my amazing husband, Dave and we have two beautiful children together which led my heartfelt passion into teaching Lamaze.
This class is designed to provide you with the knowledge, tools and confidence to have the birth you desire. Birth is one of the most important events in parent's lives & this class will teach you everything you need to know about birth in an interactive & fun way through activities and illustrations.
