Your Birth Experience Class
Expecting Arizona families value equipping their minds with knowledge, their hearts with confidence in their own birth/parenting philosophy and their hands with the tools needed to enhance their birth experience.
Leanna is a childbirth educator with Flourishing Families because she believes your education should be as unique as your family.
These private or group classes will leave you feeling savvy and conscious of the decisions you can make to cultivate your absolute best birth experience. If you’re looking to feel connected to your partner, connected to the birth process and connected to your baby, take advantage of this fully customizable learning experience. Whether it’s in your home, on your time or in a group setting while socializing with other expectant couples, you can trust you are getting an unbiased, holistic class approach.
Your Birth Experience prepares you for an unmedicated birth, birth with medication or an epidural and even cesarean birth, without gimmicks or fluff. You will choose the topics that are relevant to your plans and together we’ll bridge the gap between the unpredictability of birth and the options and feelings you value for your experience. Leanna cultivates a class environment that fosters positive energy and mindfulness to send you out, open to whatever unfolds and deeply engaged with your baby’s birth.

Because This is YOUR Experience, you will:
With my guidance, we’ll discover aspects of you and your partner’s personality and decision-making processes that will leave you with a deeper understanding of how to best navigate your choices. We’ll use the Your Birth Experience Parent Guide to walk you through the unique facets of yourselves and your relationship that you’re bringing to your baby’s birth.
Mindfulness and positive imagery hold a lot of power during pregnancy and in the birth space. In this class, you will engage that power to create an uplifting birth vision statement and truly envision what a supported and satisfying birth looks like to you. You will engage with your unique goals and desires to bring your vision to fruition.
Throughout class, you will explore the physiological and anatomical process of birth, including the hormonal chemistry, what your baby is doing and what your body is doing. You will learn about all of the variations of normal in birth, what to expect from start to finish and what each stage of labor brings. You’ll be prepared not only for the physical aspects of labor and birth, but also for the equally-important emotional side of things.
Once we have learned about you and what your goals are, we can find methods for relaxation and pain-coping that will match your unique childbirth style. We will practice comfort techniques, positions for rest and labor, and a variety of things to help you feel relaxed during your birth. These hands-on tools aren’t specific to any one method and can often be used with and without pain medication during labor. They will leave you feeling confident in your ability to birth your baby and ready to experience this life-changing day with your partner and family.
