Whether this is your first pregnancy or your 5th (or more!), this class has all the information you need to be able to make informed decisions throughout your pregnancy and labor/delivery. We focus on keeping your birth partner involved and encourage him/her to accompany you on your pregnancy and birth journey. This class focuses on evidence-based research so you become your own best advocate. This class will focus on your pregnancy as well as what to expect and how to cope with labor and delivery and postpartum.
Breastfeeding is such an amazing bond between a parent and their baby. This class will give you all the information you need to form a successful nursing relationship with your newest addition! From immediate postpartum through the first year (and beyond!), you'll be prepared for it all.
We also offer one-on-one breastfeeding assessments to evaluate latch and troubleshoot any concerns you may have.
They don't call postpartum the 4th trimester for nothing. Too often, moms are expected to "jump right back in" to the normal swing of things as soon as their baby is born. We are here to provide support. Whether it's just someone to talk to or you need help troubleshooting with breastfeeding, we're available 24/7. Welcome to the BBP family!
Our mission statement is at the very foundation of everything we do here at Better Birth Project ...to make births “better” by providing information and support in a way that makes the birthing person empowered to confidently make decisions surrounding their own birth experience. Our main goal is to change the face of our birthing and postpartum community in a positive way.
Our support here is unconditional, so it’s important to emphasize that a birth that is “better” will be different for everyone. A “better birth” is not unmedicated or with an epidural, or a homebirth or a birth center birth or a hospital birth. It is not a water birth or in a hospital bed. It’s not on your back or on all fours or any of the other multitude of positions you can give birth in. It is not only with a doula or a midwife or an OB. It is not a vaginal birth or a cesarean…
A better birth is a person who is INFORMED. A person who is SUPPORTED by a birth team that they trust. A person who is EMPOWERED to confidently make informed decisions surrounding their birth.
Here at Better Birth Project, we offer childbirth education, breastfeeding education, doula services, breastfeeding and postpartum support. Everyone deserves a birth that is better. Every single one of you.
