Why an ONLINE Prenatal class?

After thousands of deliveries...

I saw that families who took a birth class felt happier with their births, and their transition into parenthood. I KNEW that childbirth education was so important. I knew we needed to do better, and I started teaching prenatal classes for my own hospital to make a change.

But, what we were doing wasn't working....

Couples were:

  • Busy -- 6 pm on Tuesdays just didn't work for a lot (and sometimes one would have to miss)
  • Tired - after a busy day at work they couldn't concentrate & the rooms were uncomfortable, and they were STARVING.
  • Missing -- Classes filled fast, couples schedules were hard to mesh to find a time that would work.
  • Not doing it -- So many couples WANTED one, but just couldn't make it work.

So, I changed it

In 2014 I launched the first edition of this class, and have edited and adjusted it until it was one of the best selling, and the most helpful childbirth class on the internet.

I am excited to help you get the confident, collaborative birth you want -- on your OWN schedule. This class is taught entirely on demand. It can be done anywhere or from the comfort of home.

So, what's the big deal?

Let's see what the studies show:

Benefits of prenatal education classes have included increased confidence for labor and birth among women who attended prenatal classes, higher likelihood of breastfeeding, improved communication between childbearing women and their maternity care providers, decreased need for analgesic medication in labor, and increased satisfaction with birth (Chalmers & Kingston, 2009; Enkin et al., 2000).

This Prenatal Class is Taught by a Highly Experienced Labor and Delivery Nurse

I'm Hilary
...I'll be your nurse today.

I don't know how many times I've said that, but it never gets old.

As a labor & delivery nurse for almost 20 years, I've helped thousands of moms in person, and millions of moms over the internet as The Pregnancy Nurse™. It's been my job for two decades to help pregnant mamas overcome their nerves and safely bring their babies into the world.

Plus, I've had three of my own, so I know what it's like to be on the other side of those pregnancy fears.

With everything you need to do to prepare for the arrival of your baby, I KNOW childbirth preparation classes are hard to squeeze into your schedule. But, think about how much time you'd free up in your days & weeks before the big day if you weren't spending so much time worrying about what to expect.

In the span of just a few hours, I can help you simplify labor so you can move on to getting excited for your big day."

The Online Prenatal Class For Couples is Split into Three Topics

#1 Before Labor

Wondering why your doctor ordered a certain test, or what exactly you should be worried about (because everything seems a bit weird)?  This topic talks ALL about that.

  • Third trimester testing -- so you can know what your doctor is looking for.
  • When to go to the hospital -- be it labor or something else, when should you go in?
  • Signs of Labor - Learn how to take the clues from your body that labor is coming (becuase it's not just your uterus).

Wondering when to go to the hospital? There is an easy formula that will get you there on time, but not too early!

#2 Labor

The labor room seems so "mysterious" but it doesn't have to be that way.  Experience is key and you will be prepared in all these areas: 

  • Admissions Process - so you're not caught off guard in the very beginning.
  • Induction (the how's and why's) - So you can make good choices for your family.
  • How to say no without feeling awkward (how to drive your own delivery)
  • What exactly will happen at delivery - Enjoy that baby instead of being worried what everyone is doing!
  • Pain Management Techniques & Options - We'll go over IV medicine, Nitrous and Epidurals at great length so you're prepared to get what you need. A whole bonus section on natural hospital birth (without pain medication).
  • Common Complications - Small complications are very normal in L&D.  You'll know exactly what the nurse is doing and why.
  • Cesarean Section Info - Instead of nagging worry, you'll know what to expect if you end-up going this route (we go through the whole procedure start to finish)

The Online Course & Deluxe Course includes bonus videos on natural pain management.

With these tips you'll no longer wonder when to get the epidural. You'll be a pro.

#3 After-Delivery

If the labor room is a mystery, after you have the baby is just a blur.  This class shares exactly what to expect in the hospital setting & when you go home.

  • What to expect during the "golden hour" (and yes, it's as good as it sounds)
  • The difference between labor and delivery and postpartum care - so you know what to expect from your medical team.
  • What you'll expect from your care providers during your hospital stay so you aren't left with a million questions.
  • How your body will feel both in the few days and weeks following delivery, so you can be as comfortable as possible.
  • Warning signs for both mom and baby, so you're filled with confidence that things are OK.
  • Breastfeeding tips, so you can make sure baby is being fed.
  • Feelings, so you're not caught off guard by all the emotions you might be feeling .

The Online Course & Deluxe Course includes bonus video on newborn care! It's like having your own postpartum doula!

Wondering how to get the most out of your hospital stay and get all the help from the providers while you're there? I'll give you the tips to make it great.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We've got A's for your Q's

Do you need to be a couple?

Absolutely not.  However, I wanted Dads to feel involved and appreciated in this class.

There are couples questions, but you could totally skip that part very easily.  

Is it Insurance/HSA reimbursable?

Some insurances do cover a childbirth class, and your receipt of my class should be enough to be reimbursed (but I would certainly call before expecting that).  I do provide a receipt that says what it was and who I am.

HSA rules seem to vary a bit by provider, but a class that covers about the delivery of your baby is covered, so I would expect it to be elligible, but of course -- I would talk to your tax man before you plan on that too. :)

Note:  HSA cards often won't work with the teachable system, so you may have to reimburse yourself from it.  Those cards often only work at direct pharmacies or doctor's offices.  

Does this cover breastfeeding?

There is some information on breastfeeding, but I strongly recommend you take a breastfeeding class on it's own.  I have a few that I recommend in the course (often with good discounts).

What does Lifetime Access mean?

It means as long as the course is available on the internet, you will have access to it.  Any further updates, or changes -- you'll get those too.

Pretty great, right? 

How long does this course take?

It really depends on your learning style and how much time you have.  The minimum would probably be 3 hours, just to watch the videos (which can be sped up).

When should I take it?

You can clearly buy the course at any point during your pregnancy (I designed it to give you access for the whole thing).

I think the best time to really focus on it is around 30-34 weeks. Obviously, you can buy at any time and then work on it when you feel you're ready! 

Also, even if you're within days or weeks of your due date, you CAN finish this class in a day or two.  So, unless you're in labor RIGHT now -- there's still time!

What are you waiting for?

In just a few hours you could be prepared and be anxiety-free about your upcoming birth.  Join me today!

Expectant parents, new mothers, pregnant moms and new parents are looking for online classes that talk about the stages of labor, birth plans, and the birth process for the birth of their baby. This class is taught by a registered nurse about comfort measures for new moms. It can include include support groups with childbirth educators. It is really important that you learn about medical interventions at your own pace in online birthing classes. You have plenty of time to take it, it has 3 hours of instruction. Similar to in person classes, we will talk relaxation techniques for natural birth, cesarean birth and what your support person can do for you. It is a great option for busy couples. Pain medication is an important aspect that your delivery nurse will discuss with you. Don't forget you don't JUST need these online programs, you'll also need a car seat . It is like the current Lamaze classes that give you valuable information. This class does not cover infant CPR , but it is one of the online childbirth classes. This class may not be enough for natural childbirth . Expectant mothers who expect no pain relief in their birth stories might want to get a course from a Lamaze certified childbirth educator or Hypnobabies. This course does cover baby care, how family members can help even with their busy schedule. Your vaginal birth is important for pregnant women and this class gives you convenient access -- and we even have virtual classes that are similar to an in person class. Make sure that you are getting your prenatal care. for your new baby. This class is OK for people giving birth in a birth center, and have a good internet connection. It is parent education for the entire family to prepare for their birth. It is not created by a lacatation consultant and it is not the Mama Natural Birth Course.
