Everything you need to know about pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum~

Join Certified Childbirth Educator and Doula, Lauren Russo, in a 4 week evidence-based series for expectant parents.  Includes student workbook, weekly homework, access to dozens of evidence-based resources, book recommendations, and a private 20-minute birth planning meeting with Lauren.

Series outline:

Class 1: Birth culture, your birth goals, nutrition and health, how our babies grow, how our bodies open, the stages of labor, due dates.

Class 2: Comfort measures and coping techniques for labor, breathing techniques, laboring at home and in the hospital/birth center, suggestions for the birth partner.

Class 3: Shared decision making, informed consent, common interventions/procedures in pregnancy and birth, labor with an epidural, cesarean section, writing your birth preferences, and the use of a doula.

Class 4: Recovery in the hospital, settling in at home – “the fourth trimester,” feeding your baby, the physical and mental recovery after birth, getting established with breastfeeding.

Childbirth education classes are best recommended for the second and third trimesters.

Instructor Bio: Lauren is a childbirth educator and birth doula serving families in the DMV area for their hospital, home, and birth center births.  After serving in the U.S. Navy for more than 10 years, she transitioned to birth work full time while raising five children at home.

“I believe positive birth experiences are achieved when families feel informed of their options, empowered to make a choice that suits them best, and are supported continuously throughout pregnancy and birth.” – Lauren Russo
