Childbirth Prep

Lamaze® Childbirth Preparation Classes

Childbirth Education for All!  unknown

Enlightened Mama’s mission has always focused on offering quality childbirth education for as many families as possible.  We are thrilled to announce that we are officially partnering with Everyday Miracles, an incredible non-profit organization that has been serving the Twin Cities for years by providing doulas, education, and resources for lower income and at-risk families.  Starting this month, all of our childbirth education will be taught and managed out of Everyday Miracles. Our wise Lamaze instructors, Erin Sutton and Charlie Foust, will be offering a full Lamaze series once per month, plus a monthly Childbirth Crash Course, VBAC classes, and a breastfeeding class.  Families with Medical Assistance will be able to take classes at no cost, while our other families will not only get stellar education, but also know that a portion of all of their payments will go towards providing education and doula services for a family in need.  It is an honor to growth our longstanding relationship 
with Everyday Miracles in this way!

These classes provide in-depth, evidence-based information about pregnancy, labor, birth, breastfeeding, and postpartum, all in a fun, relaxed environment. Our classes are dynamic, interactive, personalized, and not your typical childbirth classes.

Topics include:
• Fabulous things your body does to prepare for birth
• Comfort & relaxation techniques for an easier, shorter labor.
• Transition into parenthood
• The importance of breastfeeding and how to get it off to a good start
• Much more!

Our classes are small to ensure that you receive the personalized attention you deserve, empowering you for birth and beyond. You will also connect with other expectant families, forming lifelong friendships! The course is four, 3-hour sessions and is designed for all mamas-to-be and their partners/labor support, birthing in any setting.
