A birth class is an investment
As a midwife, and a mother myself, I know the value of solid birth education. And in my work, I strive to give as many expecting parents access to this comprehensive childbirth class that can make a huge difference in their birth experience.
We are living in an extraordinary moment in time - a pandemic on top of an already hurting birth care system, is making it extra difficult for families to have access to the care they deserve. Evidence shows that Black, Indigenous and People of Color do not have equal access to health or birth care as White people do, and that systemic and individual racism, and generational trauma is leading to poorer outcomes for these communities. Queer folx, and members of LGBTI+ community are also facing discrimination, ignorance and unfair treatment. As a White, heterosexual cis-woman, I am dedicated to using the privileges I carry to create equitable access to birth education, while remaining present to the lived experience of anyone I work with. As I continue to learn more about racism and discrimination, I offer a sliding scale to anyone that feels this is helpful or supportive. It is up to you to choose a reduction in cost as it suits you - only you can make a decision on what would work for you and your family.
If you are a Black or Indigenous expecting parent, an expecting Person of Color, or LGBTQI+, I invite you to use the amount of $100 off the class fee, and spend the money you saved towards your families needs. If you are using Medicaid, or are experiencing financial hardship, I also invite you to use the full $100 dollars off the class fee. You are also welcome to choose any other amount off the class fee. Please feel free to email me if I can help you in any other way or if you have suggestions for how I can improve my work towards equity in birth education and birth care.
*One ticket is good for both you and your partner or birth support person
*Consider an extra 3 months access to the Parent Online Portal if your due date is more than 3 months out, or book this option any time during your class.
