Supported Birth

Supported Birth childbirth classes educate couples to make conscious choices about the birth of their baby, based on a combination of technical knowledge, confidence in the natural process of birthing, rediscovering and trusting instincts, and many time-proven pain-coping tools and techniques. Lamaze is still used as a catch-all phrase for birthing classes, but Lamaze classes are now eclectic and acknowledge the importance of the birth environment, labor support, and collaborative “methods.”

There is no right way to give birth. Our birthing classes in Los Angeles explore the factors that can influence labor, what are true complications, and when medical intervention is appropriate. However, the naturalness, normalcy, femaleness, and primitiveness of birth is emphasized.

What Our Childbirth Classes Provide

Birth is the bridge into the major life transition of parenthood, and Supported Birth classes also explore issues facing couples, fathers, and mothers as they confront the challenges of enormous change. Giving birth can be a transformational experience. Supported Birth wants it to be an empowering and positive one.

Supported Birth wants each woman to know that she already instinctively knows how to give birth, when given the freedom to labor with as much support and privacy as possible. A woman’s need to feel safe in her birthing environment can be greatly enhanced by experienced labor support. Our Los Angeles childbirth classes offer low-cost, mid-range, and full price doulas from the Supported Birth Directory.

“I believe that successful childbirth classes are not a series of instructional lectures, but rather a process of growth and self-discovery that prepares new parents for this life transition. Instincts plus knowledge, together, form the core of strength and yielding that a woman needs. Different women have different hopes, fears and desires for their birth so it is up to the parents to find the tools that resonate.”
