At Doulas of Austin, we believe in the power of education. We know that by providing expectant families with evidence-based information and support, they are better able to make informed decisions for themselves, their birth, and their baby.

We also know that birth is a highly individualized process, which is why we offer a Childbirth Education class that can be tailored to each of our client’s specific needs and preferences. No matter what type of birth you are planning – hospital, home, medicated, unmedicated, vaginal, cesarean, with a support person or alone, our course will equip you with the information and tools necessary to approach labor and navigate your birthing options with confidence.

Our comprehensive class will cover all aspects of birth including:

  • Understanding the anatomy of birth and the birth process
  • Creating a birth plan and knowing your options
  • Comfort measures & labor progress techniques
  • Practical tips for partner involvement
  • Common interventions and how to navigate them
  • How to trust yourself and your ability to birth

This class is created and taught by Registered Nurse and owner of Doulas of Austin, Chiminh Ashton. It is a private class, roughly 3-hours long, which is taught in the comfort of your own home at a time that works best with your busy schedule.
