birthED was born from the intention to support women and families as they navigate the joys and concerns of bringing their children into this world. Every birthED class has an emphasis on identifying each student's unique values and philosophies and assures authentic, honest, trained, and certified teachers.

With years of experience supporting women in their births as well as 1,000s of families taught over the past 5 years, birthED brings a unique knowledge to childbirth education. Rooted in the LamazeĀ® Healthy Birth Practices we bring evidenced-based actionable information to our students in a fun and interactive class.  


Birth classes are a must! I knew exactly what to expect and how to advocate for my birth plan during child birth. This is an example where knowledge is power and crucial in such an important event in your life.
