Over the course of 2 evening sessions the class explores what you can do to bring about a healthy pregnancy, birth, and baby, and how to prepare for a gentle postpartum transition to parenthood. Morgane V. Richardson, birth doula and professional feminist, leads the class with a blend of lecture, discussion, experiential learning, and inner exploration.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • The anatomy and physiology of birth
  • Stages of labor
  • Comfort Measures and labor-support techniques
  • Negotiating the medical system and interacting with medical caregivers
  • Articulating birth preferences ("birth plans")
  • Giving birth by cesarean
  • Understanding medical procedures and interventions
  • Postpartum care and feeding  

Morgane delivers an empowering approach to birth. You’ll walk away from this course with an understanding of reproductive laws and your rights as a birthing pregnant person.
