We come to birth work with a deep passion for education, empowerment, advocating, and cultivating a community of support for the birthing family.

Bellwether Doulas offer child birth ed workshops, birth doula and postpartum doula support, birth photography and lactation counseling.

Per Session
Monthly on the first Wednesday
7:00 PM
This class runs Wednesday's from 7pm-9pm for 4 weeks on Zoom. GentleBirth Workshops provide expectant people and partners easy to learn brain training techniques including Mindfulness, ... moreCBT and the neuroscience around pain, Sports Psychology, Medical Hypnosis and the physiology of birth, along with tools, information and techniques to prepare for the most positive birth possible. Unlike hospital workshops I will ensure you understand your options for navigating your birth preferences in the hospital system. Most importantly, we will be learning all advanced comfort measures, like birth ball, TENS, acupressure and more in order to have a full toolkit of comfort strategies.

Dress comfortably to Zoom, as we will be trying a lot of these comfort measures. If you have an exercise ball, massage tools, a rolling pin, and a long non-stretchy scarf we will need those for certain sessions. Enrollment includes the live Zoom 4 week class, access to additional online educational materials and 30 days app access.
