Get Advice on Pregnancy & Birth



As a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, she believes that women and their families deserve to have enough information to make decision for their best birth. Robin’s classes are focused on increasing confidence and teaching skills that you can’t get from a book or on the Internet.

  • The pregnant body
  • How your body goes into labor
  • How your baby experiences labor
  • Timing contractions without driving anyone crazy
  • False labor versus real labor: Telling the difference
  • A variety of relaxation exercises for everyone
  • Things that ease labor pain, including epidural anesthesia
  • Birth stories and videos
  • Labor variations: Short, long, back labor, and more!
  • How to push your baby out, including positions to prevent tearing
  • Being a good consumer: What questions to ask and how
  • Cesarean birth: Why it happens and how to make it family centered
  • Breastfeeding basics: Getting started, building a supply, basics of pumping
  • Postpartum: The physical and emotional aspects of the new family
  • Much more

Every student will be given a class book, all handouts and access to out of class opportunities.

Robin offers group and private childbirth classes based on the Lamaze® Healthy Birth Practices. The courses cover the changes in the end of pregnancy, advocating for the birth you want, birth planning, preparing for labor, positions that help labor progress, comfort measures, epidural anesthesia, relaxation, breathing awareness, cesarean birth, basics of postpartum and much more. While there is no one right way to give birth, it is important that you understand what options are available for you to choose.
