Over my last 3 years of being a birth Doula and supporting couples through their life changing birth experience, EDUCATION is the key! My couples that have had through childbirth education have a much easier time through labor and are able to make decisions easier due to being knowledgeable. When the registry manager at Babies R Us reached out to me to teach classes at her location, I said YES!!! Wednesday night I taught my first Birth Prep 101 class at Babies R Us on Arbrook in Arlington, Tx. There were 9 interested, question asking couples in attendance. In my Birth Prep 101 class I highlighted:
*importance of childbirth education
*selecting a comfortable birthing environment
*choosing a healthcare provider you love and are compatible with
*having a supportive birth Doula and team
*self care, nutrition, exercise, hydration during pregnancy
*early signs of labor
*comfort measures for labor

There is quite a bit of childbirth knowledge that all birthing couple should know so they can prepare and navigate through their birthing experience with confidence and ease. It is very important to attend a childbirth education class and I highly recommend it to my clients!! I find childbirth education so important, that I am now a childbirth educator. Upon receiving this training, I have added private childbirth education classes, in the comfort of your own home to my Doula services. Yay!!
In my birth Doula career, I have now served 21 couples having 12 girls and 9 boys. January, February and March of 2017 I have availability for birthing couples. My passion lies with first time moms, VBAC and women with a heart of an athlete who desire a home or birth center birth. If you would like to meet with me for a FREE meet and greet, please contact me. I service Fort Worth, Arlington, Mansfield, Dallas and surrounding areas. I look forward to hearing from you soon!!
If mommy is healthy and baby is healthy, LABOR ON!! Happy Birthing!!
