    Hello! I was wondering if it would be redundant to take both the home birth and the natural birth online classes? Are they much different? Thank you!

    • Yes, it would be redundant. The material for managing pain is the same. The difference is that in the Natural Birth class, we cover how to best manage the options you have in the hospital and in the Homebirth class, we discuss how you might handle a hospital transfer. I’d recommend only taking one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My husband and I are planning a homebirth in mid December with baby number 2. My midwife wants us to take a homebirth based childbirth class. Unfortunately we live a ways out of San Antonio and it is very inconvenient for us to plan for 8 to 12 weeks of classes with a two year old. An online class seems like the best option for us. So, we are wondering if your class is a mix of different practices (Bradley Method, Birthing from Within, lamaze, etc.) Or just one method? Is the class work at your own pace or live streamed? Do the classes happen at certain times of the year, or are they available once you pay for them? Are they able to be downloaded onto your computer so you can reference them later? Thank you.

    • Thanks for contacting us, Megan. Our instructor is Lamaze certified so the curriculum is Lamaze-based. However, Lamaze is no longer just one method. Lamaze incorporates a variety of comfort techniques and we acknowledge that birth is not one-size-fits-all. ๐Ÿ™‚ You will learn breathing techniques, massage and touch, comfort positions, visualizations, and other strategies that you will be able to choose from. We believe that the laboring woman knows best how to help herself feel best- she just needs plenty of tools from which to choose and a partner who is familiar with the tools as well!

      The class is completely at your own pace. There is no live component at all. After you complete a lesson, you will communicate with the instructor about that lesson. You get personal feedback within 24 hours, but it is not live. Classes are available all year around. As soon as you send your payment, we ship your book. It usually arrives in 2-3 days and then you can start whenever you wish! The classes are not downloadable, but you can access them any time. (The password does not expire.) Many of the lessons consist of readings from web links that you can save as well. If you have further questions, we will be happy to answer them. You can post here or contact us at sabirth @ gmail . com or call (210) 275-1839.

    Hi! Are the birth class fees $25/day or the full pack?

    • The $25 covers 6 lessons. There is an additional $10 charge for the registration/ book fee. That puts your total to $35 for one 6 lesson class. If you choose to take more classes, you do not pay the additional $10 fee since you will already be registered and have the book. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Would like to be listed on your site. Know we have ur cards here at the center. Thx, Joi

    • Joi- You guys are listed under Birth Centers in the Local Resources (see top menu) section. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also always recommend that clients who are interested in a birth center (for this or for a future pregnancy) interview with each of the three local birth centers and decide which is a fit, so I recommend you verbally often! Thanks for the amazing service you provide. I have heard wonderful things about your center. –Elaine
