I am so pleased to be bringing back the class formerly known as 'Flutterby Lamaze/Flutterby Express!' It feels like coming home in a way, as this was the first class ever offered at Flutterby. As I have expanded my doula services and had the chance to garner feedback from more and more expectant families, I heard one thing loud and clear: We need more options for childbirth education; and we want to know all of the choices we have for ways to accomplish our best birth!
The Flutterby Birth Class is inspired by my Lamaze International training, and combines the Six Healthy Birth Practices of Lamaze with wisdom I have garnered through my doula work and additional certifications. I am so excited to bring even more information to families than I ever have been able to before. This includes up-to-date information about the trends at local hospitals and birth centers, as well as a deeper focus on the mind-body connection in birth and how to prepare both mentally and physically for birth.
This class is offered in two 10-hour formats: Two weekend days (5 hours each class, for those shorter on time), and four evenings (2.5 hours each class). The weekend format was incredibly popular in the past, and I look forward to once again bringing this option to Twin Cities families!
