Childbirth Classes

Feel confident and ready to say Yes to Birth!

Using hypnosis, relaxation, meditation, breathing, the power of your mind, and the connection with your baby to give birth the way that nature intended.

Classes are appropriate for pregnant women who either know that they want a natural birth or who want to try for the most natural birth possible. Hospital, home birth or birth center birthers are all encouraged to attend. Please bring your partner/husband or a dedicated birth companion. I also suggest hiring a doula.

Happy Parents

catalyzing a profound, strong and quick change

She teaches about labor and birth from a perspective that’s less well-known in our culture. If you and your partner want to be together and strong during this (amazing) experience, this class will give you the support that you want.


A Real Turning Point

After taking her class we felt so reassured that we’d made the right choices about bringing our baby into this world the best way we can!

Fearful or Anxious about Birth?

Within the first 20 minutes Rachel said something that clicked and shifted my energy towards the positive. She emphasized how the energy you bring to the birth is the energy with which you welcome your baby into this world. This statement has given me the foundation to feel confident that I can welcome my baby into the world with love and joy rather than let it be overshadowed by my own fear and anxiety.

Meet Your Instructor

I believe that the way babies are born makes an impact on the rest of their lives. Therefore, I work with women and their partners to create a warm and welcoming environment where babies feel safe to enter.

My job is to help you feel totally confident and ready to say YES to Birth! AND have the information you need to make choices where, after your baby is born, you are completely satisfied with the way it all went.
