Do you know someone whose schedule makes it hard to attend a weekly childbirth preparation class? Are there few high quality, natural childbirth classes in your area? Do you have older children and no childcare available? Maybe you are on bed rest; or your partner has a different work schedule than you…or perhaps you just don’t feel comfortable talking about birth in front of a live class.
Powerful Mamas has heard you, and is elated to announce the “birth” of a brand new childbirth preparation option for expecting families throughout the United States! It’s time for more options. It’s time for Powerful Mamas® Online Natural Childbirth Course!
As a doula and natural childbirth educator with Powerful Mamas over the past several years, Jacquelyn Duke has had the honor of working with hundreds of families as they prepare to bring their babies into this world. She can emphatically affirm that childbirth is beautiful, spectacular, and life-changing! Yet it is also incredibly intense, for everyone involved. In her professional experience, families that go into childbirth unprepared, or hoping to “wing it”, can walk away feeling less than joyful about their births; perhaps even traumatized by unexpected events or a domino effect of unintended interventions. All too often Jacquelyn hears of mothers and families that didn’t feel they had a voice in the birth of their child, or that felt overwhelmed and confused… Powerful Mamas is here to say it doesn’t have to be this way!
Participation in Powerful Mamas® Online Natural Childbirth Course can reduce fears of the unknown and eliminate anxiety. At Powerful Mamas we believe that classes should teach about more than the phases of labor and hospital policies. Students need to know the art of informed decision making; a skill they will use during their birth but also throughout their lives. In the eight units broken into 23 mini-lessons, students of Powerful Mamas® Online Natural Childbirth Course will learn a variety of comfort measures, self-advocacy techniques and coping tools. Our course is not just one style or method that might have worked for your sister, neighbor or friend! Powerful Mamas® Online Natural Childbirth Course seeks to prepare you for the birth process, but also help you explore key topics, including choosing the right provider, birth location, and support team that will help you reach your goals. Most importantly, Powerful Mamas® Online Natural Childbirth Course offers an evidence-based curriculum, not advice based on opinions or out of date policies.
Powerful Mamas® Online Natural Childbirth Course offers opportunities for practice, questions, and peer interaction through our unique use of online student forums, polls and quizzes. In order to provide online students with the closest simulation of participation in a live, interactive course, all videos were filmed during live classes. Students will have the opportunity to hear their childbirth educator answering authentic student questions, demonstrating labor comfort measures, and providing honest insights on the US maternity care system. Online students will also have access to the same articles, activities and resources as live students; but will also have bonus visual aids and links to additional learning opportunities not available in a live class format.
When choosing a childbirth class, more should be considered than just the location and time commitment. Think hard about what kind of birth you picture yourself having, than ask yourself what kind of childbirth class will help get you there. Who sponsors the classes? Do the goals of the course match your own? Will the course prepare you for the curveballs you might face during labor and beyond?
To be entirely honest, no one knows what a contraction feels like until they’ve actually felt one! A childbirth class cannot describe that sensation for you. That is why Powerful Mamas® Online Natural Childbirth Course is about much more. Powerful Mamas seeks to build your confidence so you can handle whatever comes your way, and hopefully walk away feeling victorious and joyful, no matter how your birth goes.
Success for Powerful Mamas participants is not measured on the manner in which they give birth, but rather on how they FEEL about their experience - Prepared. Confident. POWERFUL. Register today, or if you’re not expecting soon, spread the word that there is a new, flexible option for online natural childbirth classes – Powerful Mamas® Online Natural Childbirth Course has you covered!!!
