In these Lamaze classes, we will cover the physiological and emotional stages of pregnancy, labor, childbirth and the post-partum period, cultural aspects of labor and birth, attachment and bonding with your newborn, the use of interventions and how to make educated choices, pelvic bodywork that helps the baby into a good position for an easier labor and birth, positions for labor and birth and pain coping practices.
We will explore the transition into early motherhood and how to welcome a baby into your lives as a family with ease and comfort.
Lamaze classes are focused on the Six Healthy Birth Practices, which Lamaze is known for. This class offers education and support to help you simplify the birth process with a natural approach that helps to calm your fears and teaches you and your partner to manage pain. Regardless of the baby’s size, labor’s length and complexity, or the mother’s confidence level, these care practices will help keep labor and birth as safe and healthy as possible.
Nicole is the prenatal, pregnancy, postpartum, baby, etc. genius! She was incredibly helpful during my pregnancy and her wisdom followed me through my laboring process. I am eternally grateful for her teachings. She is an experienced mother and a wise woman I look up to. ~Clarissa 2015

“Hi Nicole! I just wanted to let you know that our little Ollie’s birth was an amazing experience and we were able to deliver him naturally, just as planned. It blows my mind what a woman’s body is capable of. I labored very quickly and stayed up and active the whole time. Jeff was amazing, the midwives were stellar and the preparation we received through your Lamaze class was so important. Thank you so much!! Now to conquer breastfeeding ! Love, the S family!!!”
