Childbirth Classes

Childbirth Classes for Puget Sound Birth Center are taught by PSMBC client and co-owner, Liz Chalmers and by Wendy Dean, beloved doula, childbirth educator, and parenting expert. Here is more information about the classes:

"Birth Zone classes emphasize the simplicity of the process and the power of your body to do the work. At the end of the series of classes, my goal is that you will be:

  • more confident of your ability to birth
  • more equipped with techniques you can turn to in labor
  • more knowledgeable about the process and the paths you may take
  • more capable of making informed decisions regarding your care
  • for the birth partner: more confident of your role

Whether you give birth--as most of you will--using only your own resources, or whether you require some assistance along the way, we hope you will look back on the birth of your baby with satisfaction and joy. we wish you the best of births."

Classes are available both for first-time parents and for those looking for a refresher class.
