Early Pregnancy Class

You’re pregnant, or you’re trying to get pregnant – you don’t have time to sort out the tall tales from the science-based suggestions. And you don’t have to; I’ve got you covered .

If you’re looking for confidential prenatal education even before your first OB/midwife visit, click below.

A 2-hour class typically covers research-based recommendations for pregnancy and some common experiences pregnant people have. The investment for this class is $80.

A 4-hour class typically covers researched-based recommendations for pregnancy, common experiences during pregnancy, prenatal testing, fetal development, and strategies for processing pregnancy anxiety. The investment for this class is $120.

These classes can be personalized. If you’re interested in that option, I’ll send you a list of topics we can cover and you tell me what sounds most helpful.

“Abby taught my newborn parenting class for me, and I was blown away by her ability to connect with the moms and dads. They felt comfortable and affirmed, while also learning so much from Abby’s immense wisdom. I’m so grateful we were blessed by Abby’s presence!”

— Client, 30 min CBE class

“My husband and I took a childbirth education class from Abby before the birth of our second daughter. We hoped to have a VBAC, and we wanted to be as prepared as possible. Abby created a class for us that included an in-depth discussion of VBACs. She is an excellent teacher and a gifted researcher. She presented a complete picture of what to expect, answered our questions, and helped us understand all of our options with lots of patience and empathy. We felt very confident going into the delivery room prepared with information.  I was able to have a VBAC, and now we are home with our daughter, and we are using the postpartum tips that Abby gave us.  We are so glad we decided to take her class!”
