Let’s talk about the best online childbirth classes and how you pick which one is best for you! Is there a best free online childbirth class? We love online childbirth courses because it helps you get through the content on your own time!
What you want to look for in an online Childbirth Class:
- Available whenever
- Concise (sometimes people add length or time just to make it sound more important, but no one wants their time wasted)
- Taught by someone with a lot of experience
- Ability to ask questions
- Able to be in a group to talk with other pregnant women
After having patient after patient say she wasn’t able to get a class due to time constraints, I finally made my own.
Hi, I’m Hilary and after 15 years of practice as a labor and delivery nurse as well as teaching my own prenatal classes and running this super-informative pregnancy blog, I decided it was time to create something to get ALL the information in ONE spot. Make it funny, make it engaging, make it fast — so that couples could get what they need and get on to the business of getting ready for baby.
And I am thrilled to say that the best online childbirth class reviews are amazing. It can be intimidating to shell out good money for this type of class but I think these reviews speak for themselves.
Reviews of the Best Online Childbirth Class
“I was kind of in “la-la land” about what giving birth would be like and was just wanting to get a grasp on what was to come. Your class helped me feel very confident that I was going to be just fine.
We went into the delivery room feeling very relaxed and ready to welcome our baby girl
I have and will continue to recommend your class to my friends and family.”
Great for nervous moms!
“My husband and I enjoyed going through the Couples Pregnancy Guide! We had also just done an online pregnancy class through our clinic so this was a great supplement to that. We really enjoyed the questions to go through together at the end of each section–as first time parents, there were many things we did not think of that we needed to discuss before D-Day comes.”
Great, even if you take an in-person class!
“My husband and I were able to go through this course before we had our second child as a refresher. It was a fabulous way to remember all we needed to know before going through the birth process again. It is very clear and concise. I especially liked the couples questions at the end of each chapter because they got us talking about things we hadn’t discussed before the birth of our first child. It’s a great resource and definitely worth your time!”
Great for Second Time Moms
“Hilary is the labor and delivery nurse everyone hopes they get. This course is an invaluable resource for anyone preparing to have a baby and need a little bit of hand holding. The course itself is very detailed and doesn’t leave any details out, and being able to be in the private Facebook group with access to Hilary’s knowledge and level-headed advice is worth the cost of the class alone! I personally have benefited from Hilary’s expertise in the baby world, and I often tell people that “everyone needs a Hilary when they are pregnant.” I took a hospital prenatal class when I was pregnant with my first, and I feel that this is a far better option – especially if you can’t carve out the time to go to an in-person class. Don’t think about it – just buy. I promise you won’t regret it.”
Hilary’s experience will make your pregnancy easier!
“All I can say about this class is, “Amazing!” In its entirety, I found this so helpful. I am 34 weeks pregnant with my second child and have forgotten so much as my son is almost 4 years old. Hilary puts things into perspective & it’s so well respected as a friend but more so b/c of her profession as a L&D nurse. She is so full of knowledge & I was overly impressed with her ability to let me read something that is super scary & yet laugh simultaneously. My favorite parts about this class is how much more prepared I feel going into delivery. She covered every phase of this journey so thoroughly & clearly. I’m so happy to be apart of this class & will be looking to this as my #1 reference as it gets closer to my due date.”
Hilary makes what can be terrifying — humorous (and keeps you engaged!)
Also, I have some other reviews around the internet:
