Orlando Area Childbirth Classes

Childbirth education helps you and your partner better understand, prepare for, and feel more confident about labor, birth, postpartum, and breastfeeding. And guess what? Childbirth classes don’t have to be boring! When you take a childbirth class with me, you’ll find the experience to be fun, engaging, and informative.

Former Student Testimonials

Take a look at what my former students have said:

“Cara provided a refresher course for my husband and I because it was our second time around. The course was much needed and contained relevant and up-to-date important information based on our family’s needs. Cara not only made us feel comfortable but was very knowledgeable about all things baby and birth. I would highly recommend Cara to anyone having a baby (1st baby or 5th). She is awesome!”

-Jennifer

“As a first time father-to-be, it’s needless to say that I was pretty clueless about a lot of things. Cara did a wonderful job of making it her point to educate and inspire confidence in me and Mom. Her birthing class was very, very informative and comprehensive. She had some great demonstrations, helping us to better understand the anatomy of mom and baby, and how the birthing process works.”

-Max

“Cara went above and beyond to prepare me for what was to come (labor). She gave a great birthing class that really helped me to understand what my body was going to do.”

-Gina

“Thank you so much. We not only learned a lot but truly enjoyed ourselves in your class, so much so we gave you a big Facebook shout out along with a pic of your biz card. Thank you again for everything.”

-Heidi
