Childbirth Education

Katy Gladwin - Ypsi-Arbor Childbirth Education

Friendly, informative, and informal classes held on Ann Arbor's west side. We will cover how birth works, and how to make it go well, including labor and comfort measures. We will also talk about how to make the best decisions for you and your family, before, during, and after birth. Postpartum is also covered in detail, from breastfeeding and maternal health to relationship dynamics and adjusting to a new normal. 

Six-week Evening Series

Join us for Understanding Birth & Baby, our 6 week childbirth and postpartum class series
covering both labor & birth, and a healthy postpartum. We offer 3 week options that can be mixed and matched with our weekend classes.

Weekend Classes
Can’t fit in a 6-week class? Evenings too busy? Join us on Saturdays from 9am – 1pm, for the half-day versions of our Understanding Labor & Birth, and/or Nurtured Mother, Baby, Family classes. Each of the 3 classes is currently offered monthly.

Breastfeeding Classes
This class covers breastfeeding fundamentals including latch and supply, as well as anticipatory guidance for the first two weeks. We will cover breastfeeding physiology, troubleshooting common concerns, and tips for having a successful long term breastfeeding relationship.
