SA Birth ClassesSan Antonio Birth Classes
Our goal is to educate couples about pregnancy and childbirth so they can make the best decisions for themselves and their families.  We have no agenda to push about the “BEST” way to give birth and are here to support women and their birth partners as they educate themselves and make their own birth choices.  The pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum information provided in our classes is research-based and factual.

My name is Elaine and I am the instructor for San Antonio Birth Classes.  I am a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE).  I am pleased to be working with couples at this exciting time in their lives.  I myself have given birth five times and wouldn’t trade my experiences for anything.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Lamaze(R) Philosophy of Childbirth:
* Birth is normal, natural, and healthy.
* The experience of birth profoundly affects women and their families.
* Women’s inner wisdom guides them through birth.
* Women’s confidence and ability to give birth is either enhanced or diminished by the care provider and place of birth.
* Women have a right to give birth free from routine medical intervention.
* Birth can safely take place in homes, birth centers, and hospitals.
* Childbirth education empowers women to make informed choices in health care, to assume responsibility for their health, and to trust their inner wisdom.

Lamaze(R) Healthy Birth Practices:
* Let labor begin on its own.
* Walk, move, and change positions.
* Have continuous support.

* Avoid unnecessary interventions.
* Get upright and follow urges to push.
* Keep your baby with you.
