Childbirth Education Classes


Pregnancy and birth are physically demanding. Mental preparation and emotional support
can go a long way towards helping you manage the intensity of your upcoming labor and birth.

Ideally, you should take a childbirth class between weeks 20 and 36 of your pregnancy, while 6-8 months pregnant.

I am very exited to offer the brand new Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class.  This class is unique because it’s a hybrid class which combines the flexibility of online learning with the support of in-person connections.

We will meet in-person for four classes (weeks one, two, seven and eight) on December 5th & 12th and January 16th & 23rd.  We’ll meet from 7pm-9:30pm at Joyce Family Chiropractic and Wellness, located at 3440 West 111th Street in Mount Greenwood.  Weeks three through six, we’ll have a video conference calls. Each week, you and your partner will watch instructional videos on your computer, tablet or phone.

By taking the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, you and your partner will not only learn the evidence for your birth options in an online class, but you’ll also get to meet in-person with an experienced instructor and other parents in the Chicago area who are going through pregnancy and birth just like you!  This class is limited to only 6 couples.

In this class, we focus on comfort, evidence, and advocacy.  To help you and your birth partner prepare for birth, topics will include:

  • How your Partner can be your Advocate
  • Evidence Based Care
  • Overcoming Fears and Anxieties
  • Comfort Measures
  • Stages of Labor
  • Navigating the Healthcare System
  • Providers (Models of Care)
  • Support
  • Doulas
  • Communicating with hospital staff
  • Know your Rights
  • Interventions
  • Pain Relief
  • Labor Rehearsal
  • Postpartum Discussion
  • Breastfeeding
  • Newborn Procedures
  • Baby Care

Is this a Natural Childbirth Class?  At Evidence Based Birth®, we believe that every person has their own unique path. Instead of focusing on medicated vs. unmedicated birth, we focus on giving you tools and helping you learn the evidence, so that you can be empowered to make your own decisions! We do have a strong emphasis on non-drug comfort measures, because they have no side effects and can be used by everyone, whether or not you plan to use medications.

At the end of this class, you will have all the tools you need to create your ultimate labor and birth experience. If you want a natural birth, this class will give you the relaxation and pain management tools you need to have a natural birth. If you need an epidural or Cesarean, we’ll cover how you can be empowered that way, too!

What is Included in this Childbirth Class? 

  • Four in-person classes at Roots Family Chiropractic on December 5th & 12th and January 16th and 23rd
  • Four video conference calls with your Instructor and fellow students
  • Six-month access to the online portion of the class at Evidence Based Birth® Academy
  • Spiral-bound workbook
  • PDF library
  • Birth Story Reunion with your babies! This will provide you with a chance to debrief after your birth in a safe space. (Processing your experience is very important!)
