Birth Chemistry® Hospital Class
Birth Chemistry baby caught by dad on a birthing stool.
I grew up believing birth was a normal life process. My husband and I prepared for the birth of our first child with a 12 week childbirth series... we did our homework, asked questions, we were set!
Well... turns out there is A LOT that conventional childbirth classes leave out. You may learn that you have options, but American birth has become streamline and routine. I quickly learned that choice could be an illusion, doctors and nurses expected me to simply do as I was told instead of including me in my, and my baby's, care. I needed help communicating with my team in an effective and positive way!
The Birth Chemistry® Hospital Class is appropriate for families birthing in all birth spaces, but does focus more on tools families need for a hospital birth. Unmedicated, medicated, induced, and cesarean birth are all covered.
This class begins with an in-person class in Monterey, followed by 6 self-paced online classes, and ending with another in-person class. In-person classes focus on hands on tools for a comfortable pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and infant care. Tuition is $300. Military discount: $25

You are curious about this amazing process unfolding in your body and would like to know what to expect as your baby prepares for their journey earth side.
You want a positive birthing experience. It is my job to help you have an amazing birth no matter what it looks like. This is a non-judgmental space for you to explore your options.
You want to birth as comfortably as possible. Many hospitals have 90% epidural rates, however, 70-80% of Birth Chemistry students birth without pain medication, many sharing that they didn’t feel they needed them.
You know there is no one right way to birth! You want to know about medications as well as non pharmaceutical pain relief options to use before, with, or instead of medications.
You are open to interventions and medications if they become necessary, but would like to have the appropriate information so you can make informed decisions about your care. This is best done in advance and not when your are working hard to birth your baby.
You’re not interested in boring lectures. Me either. Leave your pillow at home too. I’ve watched my husband fall asleep during our own birth class, that won’t be happening here.
I'd love to talk with you about the plans you have for your birth!
