All Things Birth:
Whether you’ve been dreaming about this pregnancy for years or it caught you by surprise, no one is quite ready for the level of anxiety of overwhelm that comes from having to make decisions while pregnant, especially in NYC. Like sitting down with a professional wedding planner, the goal of this session is to bring clarity and calm into your journey.
This light-hearted and short class is intended for those pre-conception or in their first and second trimesters. We will help you separate fact from fiction and walk you through the NYC birth scene. What’s good when it comes to hospitals, birth centers, doctors, midwives, doulas, birth classes, body workers (and more)!
