Upcoming Early Pregnancy and Confident Birthing Classes at Nurture!

Couples expecting their first babies have lots of questions regarding their choices in pregnancy and childbirth. Angi Gunther, Confident Birthing Childbirth Instructor and Courtney Jarecki, of Full Moon's Daughter Doula Services, are presenting a two-part Early Pregnancy Workshop to answer all of your questions from "What is a birth center?" to "Which breast pump should I choose?"

The Early Pregnancy Workshop will take place at Nurture, October 17th and 18th from 5-8 pm. Day 1 will cover Choices in Childbirth including Care Providers, Birth Place, Water Birth and Prenatal Services. Day 2 will cover Doulas, Breastfeeding and Eco-friendly Baby Care. Lots of reasons to attend: guest speakers, goody bags full of community resources, samples & coupons, a cloth diaper demo, a sling demo and more! Couples can choose to attend both days or just one. $45 per day with dinner provided. Ask about a sliding scale option.

For couples looking for a fun, interactive & empowering childbirth class, Angi Gunther will be teaching a 3-week Confident Birthing "Intensive" childbirth series in November. Couples will meet for 3 hours on Saturday mornings from November 7th through November 21st. The cost is $95 per couple which includes class materials and snacks.

Angi will cover Labor and Birth, Coping Techniques, Relaxation & Breathing, Positioning, The Partner's Role and Postpartum. A birthing mother's emotional and physical needs as well as the newborn's needs are discussed throughout the series. For more information or to register for classes please email Angi at
