Awesome Birth Ready

 

Are you ready to get real about how to have a natural birth, whether in a hospital, birth center or at home?

Do you want to have an awesome birth, no matter how or where your baby arrives?

Do you know you want medications or are likely to need interventions but know that the more you know the better birth experience you will likely have?

Do you value knowledge and skills in all aspects of your life?

Wouldn’t you want to take the most comprehensive and fun classes in the region!  

Don’t you deserve to learn as much as possible and enjoy doing it?  

Are you looking for classes and groups that take you from pregnancy, through to birth, new parenthood and breastfeeding as well?  Look no further.

       Empowering.  Fun.  Gamechanger.  Unexpected.  Informative. 

Those are the words that some have used to describe my classes.  I’m blessed to have gotten to know well over 1000 families in my childbirth classes since starting to teach in 2003. They say they appreciate the energy, the jokes, the time, the options and the passion that I have for birth and supporting new parents and their babies.  My classes are small enough that I can get to know everyone, give you the individual attention you deserve, answer every question before, during and after classes as well as stay in touch.  Childbirth classes should be fun...I mean, you ARE having a baby, after all! Why not make it fun!?

Why Take Your Classes with Babies in Common?

If you’re looking forward to giving birth without medication, prefer no or little intervention or want an epidural but understand the benefits of waiting until later in labor to get one, it's best to take all three of the prenatal birth classes I offer:  Informed Decisions, Spinning Babies Parent Class* and Move & Get Comfy for Labor.

You will learn the basics of what you need to increase your chances for an awesome birth experience (as you define it) wherever you are choosing to give birth (hospital, birth center, or at home). We'll combine the wisdom of pioneers in the natural childbirth movement like Fernand Lamaze, Robert Bradley, Ina May Gaskin and Gail Tully (Spinning Babies) as well as evidence-based information about prenatal care, labor and birth to help you form your own philosophy for your birth.

The birth of your baby is a miracle. It’s awesome.  It’s amazing.  Birth just plain ROCKS.  It should be a day you rave about, no matter how that baby comes out! Find out how you, too, can have that kind of attitude about birthing.

Babies in Common classes help parents get the information they need to make informed decisions about pregnancy, labor, birth, newborn care and breastfeeding.  While classes are  based on research evidence, it's ultimately the taking of that information, new skills and the parents' values to their care providers so they can work together to figure out what is best  for each family.  Plus, for fifteen years Jeanette Mesite Frem has been teaching comprehensive and fun classes to literally thousands of Massachusetts families.  She believes prenatal classes should be fun--having a baby is fun and amazing, after all!

If you are ready to be the most informed parent-to-be, have your partner actually enjoy classes and learn things that can support YOU during your labor AND you are committed to learning and practicing what you learn because you know it'll be useful for a more comfortable pregnancy and an easier labor and birth, sign up for the whole series within the Awesome Birth Ready package:

A common question: What is the ideal order in which I'd take these classes?  

Well, if there were an ideal order, it would be the order above BUT it's pretty common for folks not to be able to do this. If possible, try to do the classes several weeks in a row...in that way you're more likely to meet the same people each class. I know, I know, you don't need more friends, but honestly, you do. Meeting friends in childbirth and prenatal classes has been a wonderful way for decades for new parents to bond with others who are going through the same major life changes. I seriously have many clients over the years that have met their best parenting friends through my prenatal classes and/or my Breastmilk & Conversation support group.
