    Doulas of Orange County offers a comprehensive and unbiased approach to childbirth education, focusing on the unique needs of the class participants, along with evidence based information. Our goal is to assist parents in preparing for their birth with confidence, by providing them with the tools needed to make informed decisions every step of the way. In this One day, 7 hour workshop, Orange County families will learn about physiology of labor, relaxation techniques and pain management options, birth choices, standard procedures and how to confidently navigate through all of their options. The class will include hands-on activities that will create a deeper bond with a mother's partner and prepare them for the incredible experience of childbirth. Our classes include judgment-free discussion of all birthing options and scenarios including natural birth plans, pain medications, VBACs and cesareans. We encourage our students to share openly and connect with other parents in the class to begin building their community for years to come!
