Find your own "right path" for your baby's birth through childbirth education that is empowering and fun.
Due to Covid-19, I am moving over to virtual, interactive classes for the next couple of months. I hope to return to “live, in person” classes soon, but with so many unknowns with this novel virus, a virtual class is the safest option. With more than six years of teaching Lamaze classes, I will still be able to offer quality childbirth education and help women gain confidence for their births.
Virtual Lamaze Classes on Oahu
Enjoy interactive learning in this informative and empowering class, where you will gain confidence for your birth and practice coping skills and much more. Learn helpful insights on birthing at each of the main hospitals on Oahu. Class, a total of 10 hours of instruction, is a mixture of cooperative lecture, short videos and valuable “hands-on” work with mom and her partner. Students will receive class handouts and a textbook via postal mail before class begins. **It is recommended that students use a laptop or a “larger screen” (5x10) to participate in class, instead of a phone screen, for the best possible learning experience.
Lamaze childbirth classes are based on the most current medical evidence available. Supported by research and the World Health Organization, class materials are up-to-date with the latest information and practices to promote and support a natural and healthy birth.
Created to help you and your partner engage and actively learn, this class series approaches childbirth education with positive encouragement and reaches all types of learning styles with lecture, discussions, handouts, videos and hands-on experiential activities.
Feeling safe and relaxed in labor directly affects the production of oxytocin, a key hormone that supports labor progress. By learning how to work together, through touch, relaxation exercises and comfort positions, you and your partner will be prepared to handle contractions with more confidence and less tension/fear.
