Learn everything you wanted to know about giving birth, from the comfort of your home!
Houston Central Doulas offers private birth classes to teach you everything you’ve wondered about pregnancy, labor, postpartum, and parenting.
Learn the How, When, and Why of all things parenting, and get curriculum targeted to your personal birth and parenting values. Discover the nuances of the medical side of birth, and learn the differences between a hospital, birth center, or home birth location. Figure out best practices for labor comfort, infant feeding, and newborn sleep. Our classes are different because they are truly tailored to you!
Offered in hourly increments, we will work with you to develop strategies that work for you. Private classes mean you get to schedule them at your convenience—making them accessible for those with busy lives. And, if you need more time at the end, we’re happy to provide as much additional education as you’d like!
***If you are one of our Hypnobabies clients, we are going to use your self-study course, or the information from your group class and not our other curriculum. Our hypnobabies doula is a certified hypnobabies hypnodoula, but not a certified educator with Hypnobabies. So you must either purchase a self-study or group class with a different company. If you have the class, we are fully prepared to support you as a labor doula and you would NOT purchase childbirth education with us. Your prenatals and birth rehearsal would be covered in your labor doula fees***
