Who should take Curtis Method Childbirth Education Classes?

Expecting moms and partners who want to learn to have an easier, safer, more comfortable childbirth. The cost of the class is for one expecting mom and a companion.

When in my pregnancy should I take the classes?

You can begin the classes any time during your pregnancy, as early as you are able. Somewhere around 18-30 weeks is a good time to start, although we have had couples begin either earlier or later and have wonderful births.

What is the cost?

Class tuition is $235 per couple, which includes all of your class materials. You can pay the full amount up front through Paypal, OR just pay the $50 deposit and the remainder will be due by the first class. Cash, Cards and Checks are acceptable, although there is a $5 credit card processing fee. Returning clients receive a $50 discount! You can come back with future pregnancies and re-take the course for $185 total.

How many classes are there?

Curtis Method classes are held once per week for five weeks. Please plan ahead for six weeks of class time. There are five weekly classes, however, sometimes we need to use week #6 for a make-up class or if one of the sessions occurs on a holiday. We won’t usually need to use the sixth week, but please leave it open in your schedule just in case. Each class is 3 and a quarter hours, with a 15 min. break halfway through to mingle and eat. See the class schedule below for our dates and locations.

What should I bring to class?

You should wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle to drink from. Also bring pillows and cushions and/or a mat to use for the relaxation sessions.

How do I confirm that I’ve registered?

Once you’ve paid the deposit, that’s it! You’re signed up! You should get an email receipt from Paypal confirming your payment was processed successfully. One week before class begins, we will send out a welcome email to the whole group with all the info you’ll need to prepare for class.

Daddy Doula Training

One of the Four Pillars of the Curtis Method is our Daddy Doula Training. This training is part of your Curtis Method class series, and is available only to our couples. Each week we teach birth partners some of our best doula secrets, aimed at teaching Daddies and birth companions lots of hands-on labor support skills so they know exactly what to do on the Big Day.

HOW MUCH: Daddy Doula Training is included in the cost of your classes!

Topics covered include:

  • Optimal Fetal Positioning: Get your baby in the best possible position for labor. Babies fit into the pelvis like a key into a lock, and getting them lined up properly before labor begins is the KEY to an easier, safer, more comfortable birth.
  • Acupressure for pregnancy and labor: Acupressure can stimulate the release of endorphins and help strengthen and regulate contractions.
  • Counter Pressure for back labor and pain relief.
  • Basic Rebozo techniques to help turn baby into the best position for birthing.
  • Slow dancing to facilitate labor progress.
  • Light-Touch Massage, scalp massage, hand and foot massage techniques to pamper mama during pregnancy, labor, birth, and post-partum. This stuff feels gooooood!
  • Physiological birth positions: Learn how the female body was designed to give birth, and how to work with gravity more effectively to get that baby out!
  • How to create a birth Environment that is Quiet, Intimate, Physiological, Patient, Empowering, and Dark (or Dim).
  • Packing your ToolBox: What to bring to your birth location.
  • Birth rehearsal: hands-on practice of your new birthing tools!
