Sometime before you arrive, we will have a phone consult (up to 45 minutes) where we go over everything that you'd like to learn and take away from the class. This will allow me to custom tailor the material to fit your exact needs. Hospital birth? Rainbow Baby? Special needs? LGBTQ family? Community based birth? Healing from emotional or physical trauma? Planning a Vbac? Multiples? Planning a c-section? I love to have material ready for your specific needs... Pack for a one night's stay in our cozy guest cabin on our property (about an hour north of Seattle) you'll arrive anytime after check-in (1 pm) get settled in, and contact me. We will decide on the best time to begin the private birth class. Siblings, and pets welcome and encouraged to participate! There will be heavy snacks and light drinks available to you as part of the package. Expect for all of the material for the birth class to take about 4 hours in total, but we always run over! the advantage of having the place to yourselves for the night, is that there is no time limit and no one else to take up the instructors time. I'm all yours! The class can take place all in one evening or broken up into evening and morning sessions. We will always begin and end the session with a short meditation.
Rob And Molly
Hello - I am Molly, a certified doula with DONA International and childbirth educator with Parent Trust for Washington Children. I have been working as a radical birth keeper for 6 years. I serve clients in all kinds of settings: home, birth center, and hospitals. I am a practicing reiki healer and trained in aromatherapy, acupressure, and massage for labor. I often use guided meditation to ease anxiety about childbirth. And I remain a touch point and guide for all my clients for years afterbirth. I am honored to have served as many families as I have. It is always my mission for my clients to arrive at their birth with confidence, and birth in their own power and autonomy, wherever they chose.
Light organic snacks and appetizers
Tea, coffee, water, some beer and wine will be available.
I provide all teaching equipment, including yoga mats, birth ball, pillows etc. I also have proprietary aromatherapy formulas…
Price of the experience includes an overnight at our one bedroom guest cabin on our property in Bow. It is usually rented out on the weekend but we set aside 3-4 days a month for Molly to offer this important and popular experience. The cabin is private, well heated, and beautifully appointed. There is a shower, bath, wood stove and kitchenette. Everything you need for a one-night retreat with your birth partner!
I will be in touch directly after you book to set up our phone consult! Upon arrival we will agree on the best time to start the class. Its always best to be well fed and energetic when we start. Its a lot of information to cover. Workshop will take place in your cabin! Pets and kids are welcome!
