Childbirth Education

&

Consultation

 

"It's unneccessary, we have the internet"

"Birth is unpredictable"

"Our doctor will tell us what to do"

"I don't have time"

 

"Birth is natural"

"I don't want to hear horror stories"

These are common reasons for not taking childbirth or postpartum classes.

 

So, why bother...?

   Evidence shows Childbirth Classes:

 

*Decrease need for newborn resuscitation

*Increases the rate of vaginal deliveries

*Decreases perineal trauma

*Decreases episiotomy rate

*On average, decrease the 2nd stage of labor known as transition (pushing), by approximately 30 minutes!

"I recommend Autumn Ingram, LMSW without reservation. Autumn’s blend of competence, knowledge and kindness is extraordinary. I would send my daughter, and her family, to Autumn in a flash and know that they were receiving excellent information, support, and /or guidance."

"Autumn is a wealth of knowledge—I took her cloth diapering workshop and went from feeling completely overwhelmed about potentially cloth diapering, to confidently planning to cloth diaper the daughter we were expecting. We also found Autumn to be really caring and supportive; she was incredibly patient in answering our questions and focused on helping our family figure out what was right for us. We’re looking forward to checking out her other workshops and postpartum support services!"
