Planned Cesarean & Postpartum


Why Take This Class?

You're having a baby. Sometimes babies need to be born via a planned Cesarean (C-section) birth. If you are planning a Cesarean but are interested in finding out what happens during a Cesarean and how to make it as comfortable, joyful and personalized as possible, this is the class for you!

What is Included in Class?

We'll go talk about the process, before, during and after and what you might ask your doctor and medical team to do for you to make it more enjoyable and sacred--it's a very special moment, after all!  Cesarean birth, happy parents with baby

We'll also go through what to expect in the hospital during your stay as well as transitioning to parenthood at home and what makes that transition easier. FYI, this class includes a bit of massage practice for partners. It also includes practical information on what your partner can do during your baby's Cesarean birth and afterward to help mom and baby in the hospital and at home. You'll also receive a link to a generous selection of reading materials, a relaxation recorded for you by your childbirth educator (Jeanette) and added bonuses just for class participants!

This is a 4-hour private class for $365. If you'd like to add a private New Baby Ready and Breastfeeding Ready, we can talk about it.
