Need a private prenatal class?

I know it can be hard to arrange for childcare to attend a prenatal class the 2nd or 3rd time around! If the group classes above don’t work for you we can schedule a private prenatal class in your home after your little one is asleep or for when you can arrange childcare. Private sessions usually take place in your home and consist of two, 3 hour sessions. The curriculum is influenced by your needs and requests. The cost for the entire private session is $295. A discount is given to birth doula clients. Contact me to schedule your private prenatal class in your Seattle/Eastside area home.

“(The class) challenged me to deal with some of my internal concerns and find more strength within myself.”
