Birth Basics

Perfect for first time parents or as a refresher!

This class will cover four main topics: informed decision-making, the labor process, coping and comfort measures, labor positions, pushing, and birth.  How do I know when I'm in labor? When should I go to the hospital or call the midwife? How can my partner support me through labor? How can I prevent tearing? This class will answer all those questions and more. 

As an evidence-based class, we do not promote one specific method of birthing. This class promotes the goal of a safe and healthy birth for mom and baby. It's structured to empower you by being informed of your options and being in the driver's seat when it comes to making decisions about your care and how you choose to give birth.


This is a semi-private class with only 1-3 couples.  The class is centered around PowerPoint, class discussion, and practicing hands-on comfort measure techniques.  Each couple will also receive a little bag filled with items that can help support you during labor.  There is a couch, chairs, bench, and birth balls for seating.  There are also pillows, blankets, and yoga mats available for use during class. Coffee and water are provided and you are welcome to bring a snack.

Your Instructor: Danielle Sollars is a Motherboard birth educator and in the past has been certified in Lamaze.  She draws on her education and training from both, as well as her nursing background when teaching this class.
