    We strongly recommend that you complete your prenatal education before your 36th week of pregnancy.

    The Natural Resources Childbirth Prep 6 Week course educates and empowers parents to make informed decisions around the birth of their child. Each educator presents the skills and knowledge which most greatly encourage a supported, calm, and positive labor and birth. Built into the framework of the course are practices of deep relaxation, breath work, visualization and mindfulness. Educators thoroughly frame birth as normal and natural while providing tools for understanding and working with fear.

    At times, the curriculum may resonate with Hypnobirthing or HypnoBabies, Bradley, Lamaze, Birthing From Within or Birthworks, Mindfulness Based Childbirth Prep or Calm Birth. Rather than a single method, the Natural Resources Childbirth Prep course is designed to cover extensive ground which is particularly relevant to labor and birth in the San Francisco Bay Area. This ensures that each family is empowered and informed to find what works best for them. All of the Childbirth instructors also draw from practical experience attending births or working with new parents and babies directly. While many of the birthing people taking this class will go on to have unmedicated births, our real focus is on "normal" or physiologic birth. We define "normal birth" as birth with confidence and joy rather than with fear guiding decisions or actions.

    Every week we will:

    -Practice relaxation
    -Guided visualization or comfort measures and positions
    -Have an opportunity to ask questions.
