There’s a lot of information about childbirth and labor to sift through. From the crazy labor scenes we see on TV, to the drastically escalating cesarean section rate we are experiencing, a girl can easily come to the conclusion that birth is something we have to painfully endure and hopefully get through. But the fact is that a large majority of women can have a positive birth experience when she is given good information, sticks with healthy habits, receives plenty of encouraging support and obtains care from a knowledgeable care team. In reality, when we prepare ourselves and invite God into the process, we can actually grow in our faith, in our marriages and in our parenting.
Kerri is thrilled to offer the newest Childbirth Preparation Classes to come to the Chicagoland area! Alpha Christ-Centered Childbirth is a five-week class series that will encourage you and your husband as you get ready to welcome your child. You’ll learn all you need to know to get ready for the big day and beyond regardless of how you plan to give birth. This series goes well beyond a typical hospital class, to prepare your heart, mind and spirit for the amazing adventure we call birth. Plus, we always have a good time in our classes….you (or your husband) won’t be bored or uncomfortable! Most class attendees end the session as friends; exchanging info and keeping up with each other after all those babies are born.
Childbirth Classes are held in multiple suburban locations for you to choose from: Channahon in the far southwest suburbs, Hinsdale in the western suburbs, Lockport in the southwest suburbs, and Mokena in the south suburbs.
Not sure you want to commit to a five-week class, already have children and just need a refresher, or early in your pregnancy but want to get started learning? Consider attending my one-evening workshops.
While wanting to soothe your new baby is instinctual, knowing how to do it is a learned skill. New moms and veterans alike know that a baby’s continual cries can be stressful and upsetting. Not only that, it can lead to exhaustion, breastfeeding problems, marital stress, and postpartum depression. Pediatrician and author, Dr. Harvey Karp’s step-by-step process explains how even the fussiest of babies can be soothed to give you more peace. Expectant couples, as well as parents with newborns two months old and younger, will benefit from this hands-on class. Babies are welcomed and encouraged to attend! The one session class includes a copy of The Happiest Baby on the Block DVD and the Super Soothing Sleep Sounds CD.
