At Birth Beyond Bias, we put new parents first, even when that means going above and beyond. We understand that due dates have a way of sneaking up on you - not everyone has time for a traditional birth class. The life of an expecting mama is complicated and sometimes overwhelming. We get it, because we've been there.
what's a busy new mama to do?
Online concierge birth coaching
WHAT EXACTLY IS IT?
This is actually a really simple question: This is an online birth coaching session where one instructor helps one couple get ready to have a baby, meeting at times and on days that make sense for the couple (and allowing for the schedule of a busy instructor!), and focusing on the specific questions, concerns, and medical needs of that couple. One-on-one birth instruction. That's it!
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW, NOTHING THAT YOU DON'T
THIS IS EVERYTHING.
