Mindfulness Based Childbirth Education in Utah County

I teach the GenteBirth method developed by Midwife, Tracy Donegan. We combine birth training with brain training for a WHOLE PERSON approach to childbirth preparation. The 6 week series is designed for couples but single parents are always welcome and comfortable in my class. Let me know what questions I can answer for you!

Studies show that adding mindfulness to birth education improves outcomes. Why? Because birth is more than a physical experience. Birth is as much mental and emotional as it is physical, so I chose a program that prepares the whole person for the childbirth journey, no matter what course it takes. Using sports psychology, mindfulness, thought training and hypnosis we reduce fear, increase confidence and prepare you in all aspects of your being. I’d love to have you join my next course!
