Birthing With Confidence

COMPREHENSIVE CHILDBIRTH PREPARATION CLASS

Let me teach you Lamaze International’s Six Healthy Birth Practices in BIRTHING WITH CONFIDENCE, to help you and your birth partner increase your confidence in your ability to give birth. 

 

As a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, I will provide you with important information on the childbirth process, including what happens in labor, ways to manage the pain and possible challenges, and how your birth partner can effectively help you.

 

It’s a myth that Lamaze is only about the breathing techniques! We will go beyond just the theories and really go into very practical learning--especially in the context of the Philippines’ maternity care.

Here’s what you can expect:

 

  • Learn about Lamaze’s Six Healthy Birth Practices for a healthy and gentle birth

  • Prepare for your birth with prenatal exercises and focused breathing practice

  • Practical tips on nutrition, logistical preparations, pregnancy and birth essentials

  • Create your birth plan and postpartum plan, that is specific to your needs and situation

  • Make informed choices in your birth and baby’s health before and during birth

  • Manage your recovery with family’s support in the early postpartum period

  • Take a confident first step in breastfeeding with basic knowledge and proven methods
     

Spend the remainder of your pregnancy with a purpose! It is my goal that after the course, you will have what you need to be able to map out the last weeks or months of your pregnancy for your exercises, postpartum preparations, and other logistical requirements--with knowledge on what to prioritize, delegate or let go.

Your birth partner is definitely welcome (more like, required!) to attend the sessions because he/she will learn about his/her crucial role in every step. As a result of the class, you and your birth partner will be capable of making informed decisions for yourselves and your baby, in partnership with your healthcare provider.

As a Certified Breastfeeding Peer Counselor, I bring not only my education and expertise, but also my firsthand experience as a breastfeeding mom of two (for a cumulative total of 6.5 years and counting!).

Parenting With Confidence

COMPREHENSIVE NEWBORN CARE AND PARENTING CLASS

With a baby on the way or already here, you are about to embark on what probably is the biggest change in your life. Let me help you prepare for your new role as parents, especially for the first three to six months of your baby’s life in my class, PARENTING WITH CONFIDENCE.

 

Learn about what’s going to happen in the first few weeks and months of your new baby’s life. See practical demos on breastfeeding, bathing, cloth diapering, as well as swaddling and infant massage. Help your child (and yourself!) by identifying their specific sleeping patterns and how you can encourage healthy and gentle sleeping practices. 

 

As an Early Childhood Educator, I will also take you through your baby’s developmental milestones, and share with you the importance of rhythm as one of the foundations of a healthy family life. Find out how you can transition peacefully and establish a rhythm in the chaotic first few weeks, as well as how this rhythm can help in mom’s physical and emotional recovery as well as your child’s development.

 

We will also talk about the mother’s recovery from childbirth, postpartum challenges, and many more. We will definitely not forget about your partner, and their role in your journey through parenthood.

Parenting With Confidence

FACE TO FACE FORMAT

viber_image_2021-04-23_13-22-51.jpg

Parenting with Confidence face to face class is merged with Breastfeeding with Confidence. Building up from what we learned from Birthing with Confidence, we will continue the journey to the immediate postpartum period, with special focus on breastfeeding, and your smooth transition with baby.

The workshop will be filled with lots of demos and opportunities for families to try out specific practical newborn care techniques. It's also a chance to check out newborn things such as bathrubs, baby carriers, cloth diapers, swaddling blankets -- and all those things we feel like we need to buy to succeed in our parenting journey. 
Of course, we will also talk about the more intimate aspects of becoming a parent: the physical recovery and the emotional roller coaster we will all go through along with our new experiences of taking care of a rapidly-developing child.

Frequently Asked Questions

ONLINE and FACE TO FACE FORMATS

When is the best time to start with the courses?


You are welcome to take the course at any point in your pregnancy and parenting journey.

I do often suggest to begin the course with “Birthing with Confidence” around your 24-26th week. This way, you finish the 4-week cycle just as you are about to enter your third trimester; and you go into it with a greater understanding of how you can spend the remaining weeks of your pregnancy in preparation for birth.

If, however, you are already well in your third trimester, DON’T DESPAIR! Even if you are already in your 38th week, you will still benefit from the courses. Just pick the Self-Paced Recorded option, and you can finish the course as fast as you need to.

For both “Breastfeeding with Confidence” and “Parenting with Confidence”, I recommend taking the course after “Birthing with Confidence”, and towards the end of your pregnancy. The dates and time-blocks for the Group Live Classes are designed to be complementary.


I have already given birth, can I still take the Breastfeeding and Parenting Courses?

DEFINITELY! It’s not too late! It’s never too late!


In fact, the breastfeeding and parenting courses are enriched because of your on-the-spot application, questions, and sharing of experiences.

 

What is the difference between the three courses?

Think of the three courses as a continuum learning experience. “Birthing with Confidence” talks about the period of pregnancy, the day of birth, and the immediate postpartum period. “Breastfeeding with Confidence”, is all about breastfeeding, and can be taken before or after giving birth. “Parenting with Confidence” picks up from where you left off during the immediate postpartum period and on to your life with a newborn for the first three to six months.

There are some content that overlap to ensure a seamless flow of ideas and to help you learn through repetition and deepening activities.


How are the private class, group live class, and self-paced class different?

All courses are presented with the same materials during the course discussion, as well as the same worksheets and handouts. The main difference is your level of interaction with me and the pace of the course.
 

The choice to go with a private class, group class, recorded class often rests on specific situation such as your schedule, learning styles, and budget.

 

How are the online classes different from the face to face classes?

The main difference is that in face to face classes, we are in the same physical space; an in online classes, we are connecting via technology.

Although all materials during the courses are the same, the two formats are also executed differently to fit the specific format. For example, in an online class, we limit the call to two hours because anything more than that is taxing. However with a face to face class, we can have the class for one full day. All of these adjustments are done to offer different options to families who wish to take the course, without compromising the experience.


 

For the Self-Pace Recorded Classes, do I get access to all materials at once?
 

Yes. This way, you can determine your own pace and schedule. You can even finish watching all the videos in one day, if you want.



For how long can I have access to the Self-Paced Recorded Classes? Does the portal allow for replays or can the lessons only be viewed once?​

The birth class will be available until around 45 days after your estimated date of delivery, and the breastfeeding and parenting classes will be available until around 75 days after your estimated date of delivery. You can watch and re-watch as many times as you wish during this timeframe.

 

I do highly recommend that you watch and study ALL the courses prior to giving birth--even just to go through a quick single run through. It is so much more effective to be prepared than to squeeze in the courses once your baby has arrived.

 

How are the classes conducted online?

Yes. All live classes are conducted via Zoom. Handouts and worksheets are sent via email. Follow-up and discussions are done via Viber or other messaging apps.

For the Self-Paced Recorded Classes, the access is granted via Thinkific online course platform.

 

Can I enroll with Birthing with Confidence for face to face classes, and then take the Parenting with confidence online, or different combinations?

Yes! You can definitely enroll in one course for face to face, and take another class online. Let's maximize the two formats to fit your needs.
 

Is my spouse/birth partner welcome to join the class? Is the learning fee for the both of us already?

YES!!! Your spouse/birth partner is a crucial part of your birthing process and is most welcome to join—I would even go as far as saying that s/he is REQUIRED to join. 😊 The class activities and discussions are designed to be a learning experience for both the BIRTHING PERSON and THE BIRTH PARTNER.

But please don’t let it be a hindrance if your partner is unavailable to join the sessions online live. For online sesisons, everything is recorded and can be re-watched with your partner. For face to face sessions, if there is no option for you to come with a birth partner, I can partner with you in class.

The fee covers you and your birth partner.


 

What happens if I don’t get to join all the live sessions for the Group Online Live Class, or if I miss one session?

All sessions are recorded and will be available for (re)viewing at your convenient time and pace.
