Birthing from Within

Birthing from Within is a creative and innovative approach to preparing for birth developed by midwife Pam England. It begins by asking key questions such as: What is it that YOU need to know to give birth?, How will you cope with the intensity and unknown of birth and parenting?, How are you preparing to give and receive support in labor and beyond?

Breakthrough Parenting®

Increase your skills and knowledge as a parent. Emphasis is on developing parent/child self-esteem, using discipline to teach children, resolving conflict effectively, promoting self-control vs. parental control, understanding how children think, and having age-appropriate expectations.


The Breastfeeding Baby Class is 3 hours long and will cover everything the couple needs to know about getting started and overcoming common problems during the breastfeeding period. ( Yes, partners are encouraged to attend!)

How to have a better hospital birth
With Lizabeth Baker-Wade, RN, Labor and Delivery Nurse

The class is taught using the guidelines of the American Heart Association.
