What Past Students
"Our Belated Christmas Present"
I had to write you to tell you how thankful I am that I took the 12 week class. I had my baby on the 26th but sadly she was breech and was unable to have our planned home birth. However, I did labor to full dilation at home before being transported to the hospital. When the midwife arrived she thought I was only 7 centimeters or so based on how I was acting. She thought that there was no way a first time mother would be so calm and be in full active labor. I took to heart everything I read in your class and I can't tell you how much it helped. My midwife even sent me an email afterward to tell me that I was amazing through the whole process and she could not believe how prepared I seemed during the labor. Also, because I had to have a C-section I was unable to be there when they tried to administer the Vitamin K and the Hep B shot but because I kept my husband informed he was able to refuse. We did get a lecture from the doctors but I know that we made the best decision because we were so informed. I can't thank you enough and I am telling everyone about this class. I don't think I would have been able to handle the labor without it.
think your book & information helped me a lot. I felt
confident about what was going to happen & not
scared. It did hurt there at the end, but the fact that
I was able to do the whole thing without any drugs or epidural made me
confident that I had done everything I could to give her the best
start. I would recommend your program to anyone that wants to
have a baby. I don't know if I would have had the
confidence to do it otherwise."
"A Personal Answer to the Fear in My Heart"
been putting off having a baby with my husband
for years, thinking I can get away with it for a while because I'm
"only 33"...but the truth is, I've been completely terrified of
childbirth and that's what's been holding me back.
After completing your natural child birth education classes, my fear of childbirth is gone. I know exactly what I need to do and my anxiety about giving birth has melted away. I can't wait to meet my baby and add my birth story to your collection."

|The Course Syllabus (opens a new window) provides complete lesson descriptions.|
Written in a one-to-one, conversational tone, each lesson feels like having a heart-to-heart conversation with a friend in the comfort of your own home, not a stuffy lecture in a sterile hospital full of strangers.
The natural child birth education program requires no advanced computer knowledge or special technology. Each lesson is crafted as a Adobe Acrobat document. Adobe Reader, a free download, is required to view and print each lesson. All you need is an email account. Just point and click to start each lesson.
Online childbirth classes eliminate the woes of struggling to remember hours and hours of lecture. You'll have detailed reference materials to review and revisit during your entire pregnancy so you never have to worry about forgetting a single detail.
You'll also be able to prepare simultaneously with your chosen birth companion(s) - any time, anywhere. With a computer and an Internet connection, they'll be able to prepare right along with you. Lesson XI is devoted to teaching your birth companion(s) how to support you during birth, so that you can both be at ease once labor unfolds.
