Childbirth Education

Childbirth Education – Bradley Method

img_20130412_153657Mary Callahan, Love Labors, Salt Lake City, Utah 801-520-6656 I got my start as a birth professional teaching the Bradley Method of Husband Coached Childbirth(r) in 2000. Since then I have been setting goals to increase my skills and services. In addition to teaching Bradley(r), I have worked as a doula, attained my degree as an RN, certified as a Child Passenger Safety Technician, and offer placenta encapsulation. Love Labors classes are independently written, comprehensive, natural childbirth education drawing from several different methods, my experiences as a doula, and clinical knowledge gained in nursing school. The series is a fun and informative 5 week course and is offered as a group or can meet with you individually. I believe each birth should be approached with love, reverence, awe, and expert care focused on the needs and values of each individual family.



Childbirth Education – HypnoBirthing

Debbie Gordon, HypnoBirthing instructor HypnoBirthing® is a wonderfully simple approach to a gentle, comfortable, and joyful natural birthing experience. This method teaches you that, in the absence of fear and tension, or special medical circumstances, severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labor. You will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles work in perfect harmony–as they were designed to–when your body is sufficiently relaxed and you trust birth. You will learn how to achieve this kind of relaxation and you will learn to use your natural birthing instincts for a calm, serene and comfortable birth, as nature intended. Your birthing companion’s familiar voice, soothing touch, and encouraging prompts will surround your birthing experience with peace and calmness and create a bond and closeness unequaled.

Childbirth Education – HypnoBabies

Hypnobabies is a complete 6-week childbirth education course. We teach childbirth hypnosis techniques based on Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth” techniques. These techniques allow you, the Hypno-mom, to: -Learn “eyes-open” self-hypnosis techniques to remain relaxed, calm, and confident throughout pregnancy, labor and beyond. -Create medical-grade hypno-anesthesia to work towards having little or no pain when giving birth. -Remain alert, mobile and comfortable during the birth of your baby. -Look forward to the birth of your baby with complete confidence in your body and your baby. In addition to learning “eyes-open” childbirth hypnosis, you will also learn about: -Pregnancy Nutrition -Prenatal Exercise -Staying Healthy and Low Risk -New Baby Care and Breastfeeding …and much more!

Benefits of using hypnosis for childbirth:

* Fewer drugs or no drugs at all – less risk of side effects on mother and baby. * Shorter labors – resistance of the birthing muscles as a response to pain is minimized or eliminated. * An awake, energized mother, due to total relaxation throughout the birthing process. * A calm, peaceful birthing environment. A comfortable natural birthing also allows for a joyful, rested mother and a calm baby postpartum. * Breech and posterior babies can be turned using hypnosis. * Fewer interventions and complications during labor. * Babies who are better sleepers and nursers due to fewer drugs in their systems.

Childbirth Education – Sweet Pea

Adrianna Costello-Martin, CBA

Birth is my bliss.

I have been a natural childbirth educator for over 14 years, certifying with The Bradley Method/AAHCC in 1996, and have probably taught over 300 couples by now!

I have taught as long as I have because I love it, and end nearly every class on a “teaching high.” That said, I have found new energy since choosing to become and independent educator this year. I feel re-invigorated and even more deeply committed to sharing what I know about childbirth with others; I am “fired up” to mentor couples through this amazing process of bringing a baby into the world. My classes are a complete, comprehensive birth education, with emphasis on helping the birth partner understand how to support the laboring woman:

-nutrition & exercise
-pain-coping & relaxation techniques
-birth plans
-Rebozo use during pregnancy & labor
-variations, complications & common medical interventions
-postpartum care
-newborn care

Classes are 10-weeks long, with an 11th meeting in your home with me for a 1-2 hour Whole House Labor Rehearsal, where I apply what we’ve learned in class to your space, showing you how to best utilize your home as a labor tool.

Tuition is $325.  A $50 deposit via Paypal, Google Checkout, cash or personal check holds your place in the class.  The balance can be paid in installments, due by our 8th meeting. Contact me at 801-231-9379 (text or call) or
