Prenatal Yoga and childbirth education

prenatal yoga and childbirth education classes.



Fifteen years ago I started working as a Breastfeeding Peer Councilor, helping women through initial breastfeeding problems.  A few years later, I became a Birth Doula for a non profit group called "Companieras".  I attended many births where women were alone in labor and frightened of the process. As their doula, I supported them and shared stories that would remind them that women have been having babies forever and how this is a rite of passage for women. This became my passion and about  seven years ago, I continued my  training to include Prenatal Yoga.  I saw the benefits that women experienced when they took these classes as a way to prepare for child birthing.  Now I continue to support families through their child birthing years by teaching Prenatal Yoga, labor prep and breastfeeding classes.

 I also offer private classes in the comfort of your home or one of my locations in Glendora, Laverne or Claremont.

    Workshops: 

Labor preparation and breastfeeding workshop     4 hours  $120. per couple (in studio)

This workshop focuses on helping your partner be the best birth coach they can be.  I have come up with a "checklist" of things that your coach can take home and use the day of labor.  Many have told me how helpful this was because it just consisted of one page that was easy to follow. 

Breastfeeding- The first two weeks and beyond.   1 1/2 hours   35. per person
Although breastfeeding is very natural, it can be challenging. Did you know that the majority of the problems women have with breastfeeding has to do with positioning and latching on?  We will go over this and many other issues that come up within the first few weeks and months.
