EARTHY BIRTH CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION CLASSES
Rhonda Anderson is a Doula and Childbirth Educator who has been in practice since 2003. She has been trained through D.O.N.A (Doulas of North America) and has received her Childbirth Education through CBI (Childbirth International) She began teaching classes to expectant parents in 2010, and is passionate about teaching women and their partners how to achieve the type of birth experience they desire, whether that is in a home or hospital setting. While some childbirth classes teach a specific method (such as Bradley Method, Lamaze or Hypnobirthing) Rhonda’s class is an eclectic mix and focuses on the emotional preparation for childbirth, and facing fears and working through them prior to the birth, so a woman feels confident and strong as she enters the new territory of motherhood. The class utilizes many avenues to achieve preparedness for labor and delivery, such as birth art, discussion, literature, breathing and relaxation exercises, educational videos and discovering the sisterhood with other mothers. The goal of Rhonda’s class is to prepare women and their partners to begin their journey into parenthood without fear, knowing how to listen to the laboring body, and trusting one’s inner voice.
Classes are purposely small, to keep an intimate feel, and will meet weekly, beginning Tuesday, Feb 1st and ending Tuesday, March 8th. Classes will be held above ArtiFacts on Strawberry Alley from 6-8 p.m. and the fee is 80.00 for the six week session. Rhonda’s doula clients get to attend the classes for 40.00.
