Stacking the Deck for a Great Birth

I hope you enjoy this free sample class that will give you lots of information and activities that will help you to figure out what kind of birth is the best fit for you and how you can best prepare to get the birth you want. You’ll learn more about how the placenta works, how to know if your water has broken and what you should do if it has, and you’ll get an audio track to help you relax with a mind vacation.

If you like what you experience here, and you want more, I hope you’ll enroll in one of my complete childbirth preparation classes where you can learn much more as you prepare for your birth.
