A note from Jenny Claire: Thank you for your interest in my classes. Due to a loss in my family, I am taking a break from teaching until further notice. I will update the class schedule when I feel ready again to provide the quality of childbirth education that families deserve in preparing to welcome a new little one. I wish you all the best with your pregnancy and birth!

Birth Story Listening Sessions and Birth Trauma Healing Workshop

Sometimes the events surrounding our birth can bring up feelings (good and bad) that we aren't sure what to do with. I offer support for processing your birth story through one on one listening sessions and group healing workshops.

The Birth Trauma Healing workshop (formerly called Unpacking Your Birth Baggage) is a day-long gathering with lunch provided. We'll use several tools to begin the process of working through the feelings you have about your birth story that may be holding you back or causing you to suffer when you remember the day. You'll take these first steps on the path to healing with a small, intimate group and the fee also covers ongoing support via a private Facebook group. Read more about past workshops here.

Cost includes lunch, snacks, and supplies: $75

Birth Story Listening sessions are for anyone who feels the need to honor their birth with dedicated space and rituals for processing, celebrating, and possibly grieving the intense moments of this major life transition. Contact me directly to schedule.

Registration is currently open for:

Kind words from a Prepared for Birth "graduate":

My husband and I really appreciated and benefited from Jenny Claire's expertise and open-mindedness. I struggle with anxiety and ... her classes really put me at ease. She created a friendly environment in which everyone felt free to ask questions, and she made sure to cover everything, even addressing difficult topics to ensure we would be prepared for any eventuality. Jenny Claire’s classes came highly recommended by the two doulas I met, and I am so glad I followed their advice. -F.K.
