FAQs and Resources
In class we talk about all the essential information you need to make decisions about your birth and create a birth plan that reflects your family’s values and priorities. We talk about the physical and emotional aspects of birth and postpartum and help you develop a plan to make sure you and your needs are heard and respected. All the evidence presented in the class is evidence based and is updated regularly to reflect the most recent research.
The Art and Science of Lactation will prepare both you and your support system to feed your baby. We will discuss lactation and feeding from a physiologic, emotional, and logistic angle in order to be sure that everyone is prepared for the journey.
The classes can be taken at any point; however, it is recommended that you are in your third trimester (after 28 weeks).
A doula is a labor support person who provides informational, emotional, physical, and advocacy support during your pregnancy, labor, and the immediate postpartum. A pregnant person works with their doula during their pregnancy to form a relationship, gather information, and create a plan for the birth they are hoping to have. During the labor a doula assists in comfort measures, assists in ensuring the laboring person is properly nourished, advocates for their birth plan requests, and any other needs that a laboring person and their family may have. It is important to note that a doula is not a medical practitioner and as such will not be performing any medical procedures such as cervical exams, taking blood pressure, or administering medication.
A lactation counselor is trained to help a lactating parent and their child have a successful feeding journey- however they may define it. A lactation counselor will work with positioning, latch, supply, and other environmental factors that may be impacting the lactating parent’s ability to feed their child.
