Childbirth Education/Prenatal Classes


Naomi provides education on the front end to help set up parental expectations of the labor, delivery, and birth process. She also provides prenatal classes to her clients.

Besides education, Naomi also instructs the birth partner on how to provide physical and emotional support during labor and delivery as their role can be crucial to help mom be in a calm and relaxed state. This will allow the natural unfolding of birth to proceed.

According to the Doula Foundation, childbirth education classes provide the necessary information so birth moms and their partners can have a thorough understanding of the birth process. This helps again to dispel some of the fears about childbirth, and allows birth moms to be prepared about possible scenarios which may occur as part of the natural birthing process.

Naomi strongly feels it is important for parents to have realistic expectations regarding their labor, delivery, and birth process. These expectations help usher in a positive mindset, and curtail the possibility of later disappointment when something did not go as they had planned.

Some of the concepts which will be reviewed during Naomi’s childbirth education classes include:

-healthy pregnancy practices
-late pregnancy discomforts
-labor onset
-early labor comfort measures
-active labor, transition, delivery and second stage
-movement and positioning
-comfort measures for all stages
-labor variations
-medical tools
-informed decision making
-birth planning
-postpartum recovery
-newborn care


By learning about labor, delivery, childbirth, and the postpartum period, mothers are able to make informed decisions regarding their own experiences. Naomi will work to understand each individual birthing mom’s words, images, beliefs, touch, massage, and comfort techniques that will create the most positive environment and experience for each birthing woman. Naomi would like each person to be able to remember their birth story in a positive manner, rather than suffer from feelings of regret.

Let’s take a look at how having continuous support from a doula can affect the emotional well-being of the birthing mother. Moms have a greater satisfaction with their childbirth experience, a more positive assessment of their baby, less postpartum depression and increased self-esteem.

Knowledge is power, and when moms and their birth parents have a firm grasp for the labor, delivery and postnatal periods they are better equipped to address when any unexpected issues arrive. Naomi’s goal is to provide the support to allow everyone to be comfortable in their role in the process.
