Childbirth and Newborn Education

If you are looking for birth classes and newborn education in Jax, then you are in the right place! You’re a learner-a preparer. You always have your taxes complete way before April 15th and your suitcase packed a week before departure. Birth and parenting is just another endeavor that you need to be ready for. Maybe you took a biology class and a safe sitter course, but that was ages ago. And honestly? It wasn’t pertinent at the time.

Or maybe you are a fly-by-the-seat of your pants kind of person. That’s ok! Now that you are expecting, you have all the questions and Facebook isn’t really answering them.  Dr. Google has proven to be of no help as well. Therefore, you want, no, you need, a quick, convenient refresher. Knowing that you can access information made for millennial parents and have the ongoing support of the teacher is invaluable to you.

Why choose us?

Our childbirth and newborn education classes are private, in-home consults that result in better understanding of the processes and options that accompany pregnancy, birth, and new parenthood.

  • reproduction and human sexuality
