Childbirth Education

The midwives of Hearth and Home Midwifery present Right Here, Right Now: Childbirth Education. This childbirth education series is focused on educating families on the anatomy and physiology of childbirth. We will discuss how hormones come into play during childbirth, as well as each stage of labor and what's happening in the mind and the body along the way. We will discuss coping techniques for labor with an emphasis on presence in order to allow labor and birth to unfold naturally.

We will educate how support people can assist the laboring person, what to expect after having a baby, and what options are available when it comes to childbirth.

This class if offered to all families of the Portland metro area and the Columbia River Gorge. We welcome families planning either a home birth, birth center, or hospital birth. The class is intended to prepare you for your labor and birth regardless of setting or provider type.

We offer a private, individualized, and in-home childbirth education series tailored to meet the needs of your family.

Class scholarships available upon request.
