One Day Childbirth Education:
It's feeling real. You're going to have a baby. You may know nothing, you may think you know a lot. After teaching thousands of parents we know one thing: there is absolutely no way to predict how your birth will unfold. While you can't predict, you can prepare.
Imagine spending the last few weeks of this pregnancy feeling ready to go into labor. Not because you know how it’s going to play out, but because you and your partner understand the science behind childbirth, learned how to stay flexible and work as a team, and have the literal and figurative tools you need to navigate this uncertain, complex, and hugely impactful moment in time.
Our One-Day Condensed Childbirth Education class moves at a quicker pace than our Weekend Intensive Childbirth Education class. You will learn the fundamentals of the Birthsmarter approach: The Three Actions™ of Birth and the Five Partner Responsibilities as well as how to navigate the hospital system and medical interventions, however, we do not cover preparation for pushing or practice comfort measures.
This class is ideal for expectant parents who are interested in live instruction and the opportunity to ask questions; who are either happy taking Push Prep and Comfort + Coping as stand-alone classes or who simply want the basics.
This class is taught by Birthsmarter educator, Caprice.
Great as a standalone childbirth education foundation, but we love to bundle this class with our Comfort + Coping, Push Prep, Postpartum Planning, Lactation (Not So) Basics, and Newborn Care classes for a truly comprehensive education! Book any three classes in one transaction for 10% off. All classes include you + your support team.
In a world where it is difficult to keep sight of what is most important Birth Smarter aims to call our attention back to what is valuable. Do you notice that expectant parents spend more time choosing a stroller than they do a midwife or obstetrician? More time arranging their nursery than arranging comprehensive support for after the birth. As a business we have the power to convince you that pregnancy, birth, and the postnatal period are worth investing in. If we don’t, women and families suffer and you miss the opportunity to build an intentional foundation for your family; the foundation on which we’d like our society to rest.
Birth Smarter lives in the space where biology meets society, wisdom meets data, and empathy meets activism. We believe that transparency is the key to birth, babies, and business, that it is always worth investing in parents, and that together, we can change the world. Our unique birth and parenting classes offer expecting parents and their support team the information and practice that will enable them to think critically and improvise during high stakes moments. Our continuing education workshops empower health and wellness professionals to become trusted pillars of their perinatal community. We’re shaping the future, one birth at a time.
