Private Confident Birthing Childbirth Classes

A Private Confident Birthing Childbirth Class is ideal for those who desire a personalized class. I will tailor your class to your needs and your schedule. You will leave more confident and more prepared physically, emotionally and intellectually for your upcoming birth. I can help reduce or eliminate any fears you may have and help you feel ready to meet that beautiful baby. My intention for you is that when you finish your class with me you are confident about your choices.

During your session(s), we can sort through all the information that’s out there regarding pregnancy and childbirth so you can make sense of it and learn how it applies to your unique situation. Whether you are looking for a natural birth; want an epidural or need/choose a c-section, a private class with me is appropriate for you. You’ll come out of your class with me knowing how to make appropriate decisions regarding your pregnancy and your baby.

Private-session

Private classes are hands-on sessions. I’ll teach you how to best move your body during labor to make you feel better and to help baby get into the best position for birth. You’ll learn massage, breathing and other coping skills to help you and your partner better work with your labor to facilitate birth.

For the partners and husbands, your needs and concerns will be addressed as well. You’ll learn how to best support mom during the rest of her pregnancy and through her labor. You’ll be able to help her communicate her needs to the staff during birth. Let me help you be confident and ready too.

Privacy and confidentiality are always maintained with regards to your session(s).

Private Confident Birthing Classes are also partially reimbursable by many health insurance companies. Please request your reimbursement form in advance of your session.

Private Yoga Classes

LPetrilla_ShiningLight2WEB-34A private yoga class is a safe space for you to connect with your body and lighten the load on your mind. You’ll work one-on-one with me to develop a practice that’s tailored to your current life stage.

We can work with your schedule to find a suitable time for your appointment. Private Yoga classes with me are available either in the privacy of your own home or here at Shining Light Prenatal Education.

Prenatal Yoga
Private Prenatal Yoga classes with me are a wonderful choice for many women. If you are new to yoga and would like some extra, individual attention to begin to build an appropriate practice, private sessions are a good fit. If you’ve been practicing yoga for a while and are looking to adapt your practice to your pregnancy, I can help you.

Fertility Yoga
I work with women, and their partners, who are trying to conceive a baby. Yoga for Fertility is a good complement to any medical treatments your doctor may offer. Stress is a large component of getting pregnant. Yoga can help alleviate the stress and give you tools to use at home to help keep you relaxed. We will also work with your pelvic floor and the muscles in the belly which support the uterus and ovaries. Fertility yoga classes can be for women only or they can be couples sessions with your partner.

Postpartum Yoga 
After giving birth, your body needs some TLC. A private, postpartum class is a gentle and safe way to help your body recover from birth. After discussing your individual needs, I will create a practice just for you. The class can also give you some much needed “me” time, a break from motherhood.

Mommy & Me Yoga
Mommy & Me Yoga is for both you and your baby. These sessions are also a gentle and safe way to recover from birth, but they include your baby. There is yoga for you and yoga for your little one to help you two connect.
