These classes are really fun!  Not only do I get you in shape, and ready for a better birth, but many meet lifelong friends.

We do light aerobics, muscle toning, abs, and weight training.  Dress comfortably, and bring light weights (1 to 5 lbs.) and a mat.

My childbirth classes cover all aspects of birth, from the physical to the emotional, and are designed for everyone, whether you desire a natural birth, or opt for medication. If you live in the Redwood City/San Carlos area, there is a good chance your obstetrician recommends my classes.

I cover warning signs, the stages and phases of labor, including medication pros and cons, breathing and relaxation, labor coach techniques, C-section (also how to avoid one) back labor, pushing, emotional aspects, post-partum and much more. Students are given great informational handouts including breastfeeding techniques, a birth film to watch and return, humor and good support! My couples leave my classes with all the knowledge they need to have a good birth experience, and feel confident and prepared.

I also discuss and demonstrate alternative methods, such as the birth ball, acupressure points, squatting techniques, massage, aromatherapy, positions for labor and delivery and how to work with your body and mind. Positive thinking changes everything.

The personal touch is extremely important in dealing with my moms and dads and the numerous issues and challenges they will have before them as new parents. Therefore, I call all my students before they deliver, and regularly for 2 months afterwards, to help smooth out the bumps in the road they are now on. I too, have made lifelong friends in the process!
