If this is not your first baby, you have the choice of the Condensed class, this class, or the Dar a Luz class series (also on this page). If this is your first baby, you have the choice of this class series or the Dar a Luz class series (also on this page), included in your birth center fees. Typically scheduled every 6-8 weeks. We really recommend taking these classes week 28 or later.
Partners are strongly encouraged (hint: doesn’t have to be baby’s other parent)! Laura teaches a fun and fascinating class that not only covers the basics, but brings together profound relaxation/hypnosis, activities, lots of information to build confidence, fear/worry/anxiety work, pain control methods and touches and movements, advocacy tips, lifelong skills for everyone… and so much more! Missed classes should be made up. There is an extra fee for materials ($75+tax) and there is homework in this class. Get in touch with Laura if you have questions — or better yet, attend our Pathfinder class as early in your pregnancy as you can! More info and a free download at www.blissborn.com
