Birth Day Presence childbirth preparation classes are well rounded and accessible. As doulas and childbirth educators, we have assisted thousands of expectant parents through a wide range of birth choices and experiences. We welcome all types of families and individuals.
A fast and furious course designed for the busy New Yorker.
Pricing is per couple or single + support person.
Class is a blend of lecture, video, demonstration and practice and will include, but not be limited to:
While we are certified with Lamaze (not your ma’s Lamaze, as they say check out the great work they are doing today), DONA International and Birthing From Within, we don’t teach any one method; we pull the best parts from the most popular methods, as well as from our extensive experience in the field.
There is no one right way to labor. We stand by the philosophy that birth is a normal process and hope to inspire confidence in everyone we teach. It is our goal to educate you about the full spectrum of options for birth, and then to support you unconditionally.
The most important way to approach your birth is with confidence and relaxation. You achieve this by knowing what possible things to expect, developing the skills to move through your labor and feeling prepared to work through whatever your journey turns out to be.
Please have ready:

Cancellations made 3 or more days in advance will receive a full credit for a rescheduled date with this provider
The school highly recommend that students schedule any prenatal classes or workshops to end by the time they are 36 weeks pregnant. If they schedule class for after they begin their 36th week, they run the risk of having their baby and missing their class without a refund. In the event that they go into labor before 36 weeks, they may apply 90% of the class cost to another class (i.e.: CPR) or service (i.e.: postpartum doula care).
In the special circumstances of a mother-to-be being placed on bed rest or delivering before 36 weeks before the beginning of a class series, they may apply 90% of the class fee to another class or service at Birth Day Presence. If bed rest or delivery happens while they are in the middle of a series (and they would have completed their classes before they began their 36th week), they may apply the fees from the unused portion of the class toward another class or service at Birth Day Presence.
Birth Day Presence is not responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for classes missed as a result of scheduling conflicts, vacations, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control.
