Comprehensive group series: about a week before class, you'll get an email from instructor Lisa (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) with a reminder of class dates and times and all the details you need to know before showing up to the first class. Classes meet in Lisa's comfy living room classroom at 20-30 43rd Street, Astoria, NY 11105. Street parking usually easy.
Comfort measures workshop meets in Lisa's comfy living room classroom at 20-30 43rd Street, Astoria, NY 11105. Street parking usually available. Please wear stretchy/athletic clothing that both you & your partner can squat and kneel in. If you’re also taking this along with Lisa’s online course, it's most ideal for you to have gone through Modules 1 & 2 before the workshop, if possible. If you want to do/have done more, that's totally fine, but skip Module 3 since that's what we'll go over in the workshop.
Private sessions: meets in Lisa's comfy living room classroom at 20-30 43rd Street, Astoria, NY 11105 (unless you’ve made arrangements for Lisa to travel to you). Street parking usually available. Feel free to bring any food you’d like to eat during our session. For birth sessions only: Please wear stretchy/athletic clothing that both you & your partner can squat and kneel in.
Optional (but highly recommended):
1) Sign up for my free, email course “11 Steps to an Amazing Birth” — it’s a perfect lead-in to the live class. (Please note: if you already opted in for my free packing list, you’ll already receive an offer to proceed with this)
2) For pregnant parent, two great book options:
a) Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin — ideal for those preferring unmedicated birth and/or desiring to normalize birth as a healthy, natural process. Heads up it leans more crunchy/woo-woo, in the best kind of way)
b) Your Birth Plan by my NYC colleague, Megan Davidson — a very inclusive book for those who want current, best-evidence data along with local, relevant, diverse stories (told by an anthropologist-doula), with a tone that is supportive of any/all birth preferences.
3) For partner/labor support - The Birth Partner by Penny Simkin
See you in class!
