Lamaze Class. Childbirth education class, Albany New York.

In Lamaze childbirth education classes, you will receive evidence-based information which will prepare you to have the kind of birth experience you want to have.


A private Lamaze class means the class will be focused on your needs for labor, birth, and early postpartum. You are unique and your class should be as well.

Have you given birth before? Great! There are still things you can learn to prepare you to give birth again.


If your previous birth didn't go the way you wanted it to or if you just want to know how things might have changed in the years since you last gave birth, take a Lamaze class again!


This class is a shortened version of our full-length Lamaze class and will draw heavily on your previous experience with birth as we prepare you for this next experience.





Why Do I Need to Take a Breastfeeding Class?

Breastfeeding has countless benefits for both parent and baby:

  • Decreased likelihood of baby developing several medical conditions.
  • Decreases mom's chance of developing breast cancer.
  • Increases the parent/child bond.
  • Less time cleaning bottles.
  • Breastfead babies' diapers are a lot less smelly than formula fed!


However, early breastfeeding can offer some challenges, and having a solid knowledgebase, by taking a breastfeeding class as well as by having a postpartum doula you can reach out to for help, can make a huge difference!
