Know Your Options
Birth Choices Classes
After taking this session, I had a Dad comment, "I thought it was just epidural, or no epidural."
You have a LOT of choices when it comes to your birth. Each segment you learn about different choices you have at different times.
You can listen to them all, OR just the episodes that are interesting to you!
Each Episode lasts under 15 minutes (except induction class). I present balanced information, covering the pros and cons of each choice, so you can choose what is best for YOU!
All 9 Classes for only $7.95 for the first 20 students.
Soon the price will rise to $25. A typical class where I cover this material runs closer to $100 per couple.
