I took Emily’s class and am so glad I did! Not only was I able to have an ideal natural birth with the tools and techniques she taught me, but I was able to decide that a natural birth was what I wanted. I couldn’t have done it without her. Take this class!

Birth with Confidence is for pregnant people and their partners who want to give birth with confidence. Designed to offer plenty of time to practice labor coping skills for people who are planning a natural birth in the Tulsa area, the class is also welcoming and appropriate for people giving birth in any setting, with any type of birth plan.

This class does not focus on one particular method of birth preparation, but includes elements of many different birth prep methods to help you fill your coping toolbox with options.

Together we will explore evidence-based information about the birth process, discover what will make your birth satisfying for YOU, have fun, and focus on the rich relationship skills you already have that will help you and your partner both feel good about your birth experience.

After taking this class, you will:

  • Know the normal process of labor and how to conserve your energy over the course of labor
  • Understand the importance of your natural hormones in the birth process and ways you can help your hormones do their wonderful work
  • Have many different comfort measures, relaxation techniques, and coping skills for labor. There is time to practice at each class!
  • Feel confident making informed choices and communicating with your doctor, midwife, or nurses about your choices
  • Have evidence-based information on all the common interventions, including when they might be necessary and how to make them work for you.
  • Identify your personal birth preferences that help your birth team support you
  • Know what to expect in the minutes and hours after your baby is born, and be able to start preparing for the first few weeks and months postpartum
  • Work out any kinks in a labor rehearsal that brings it all together to ensure you feel confident as your baby's birth day approaches!
  • Have a community of other parents giving birth around the same time as you. At each class we take time to share snacks, get to know your fellow classmates, and have the opportunity to ask questions about anything you are wondering about pregnancy, labor and birth.
