Birth Classes

CUSTOMIZED FOR NATURAL BIRTH

Childbirth Classes

Throughout pregnancy, most women read about pregnancy, labor and birth and watch quite a few births on YouTube.  To help make sense of all that’s out there, the birth center offers childbirth classes that are customized for a natural birth experience here at Breath of Life.

Classes are taught by our Certified Childbirth Educators, Kristina Yorke, Noelle Talley, and Andrea Taylor. They are also birth assistants and/or professional birth doulas so they have the knowledge and the hands-on experience to help you prepare for labor.  Check our calendar for the class schedule.

The state of Florida requires that all birth center clients complete a five-week birth class by their 35th week of pregnancy, so sign up early in your pregnancy to ensure your spot in class.

Moms Love Our Classes

“I thought after reading 8 baby books that I would know everything there was to know…how wrong was I?! I’m SO glad I took this class!” – Niki Gell

Classes By Noelle Talley

Noelle Talley of Just Breathe Doula and Birth Services leads a 5-class, customized course for mothers-to-be and their partners who are preparing for an unmedicated birth at Breath of Life. She is a certified childbirth educator, certified birth doula, and mom of three. All of her babies were born at Breath of Life and she has attended many births here as a doula. She knows first-hand exactly what a mom can expect when she plans to have her baby in this setting.

This is a casual, honest, hands-on class that includes:

  • Learning everything you need to know about childbirth.
  • An opportunity for birth partners to receive advice on how to best support Mom when she is in labor, along with opportunities to practice.
  • Practicing labor positions, breathing techniques and hands-on skills for birth.
  • Practical postpartum adjustment tips to help parents cope with and enjoy the first few weeks home with their newborn.

Dress comfortably and bring:

  • A comfortable blanket or mat for floor exercises.
  • Two pillows to classes 2, 3 and 4.
  • Questions and a sense of humor!

Register at the front desk. The class fee is $175 and is paid directly to the teacher in the first class.

“We have three children now so we are all done, but if we were planning to have more children, we would go back to Breath of Life in a heartbeat!  They made you feel like you had the comfort of your own home with a very knowledgeable staff. The facility is clean and up to today’s technology. Everyone is very friendly and let mom do what she thinks is best.”
