THANK YOU!

We have wrapped up our first class, hosted our first community events,  hung our first photo, and started our New Parent Group. This is really beginning to feel like home! All I can say is “Thank God for coffee!” & a huge THANK YOU to all our family and friends that have helped get Birth & Soul Doula Services up and running! Everything from sanding and painting, to stuffing class folders and bringing us coffee when we were too tired drive. We couldn’t have done it with out you!


Childbirth Education Classes

img_7386Here at Birth & Soul we want everyone to feel welcome and at home no matter your age, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion, or marital status. While looking for a Childbirth Education curriculum that we felt fit our mission we continued to be disappointed in what was out there, or felt the curriculums were not inclusive enough or not applicable to birthing in the Twin Cities.

Enter the Birth & Soul Childbirth Education series! We have created a unique evidence based, inclusive, curriculum that pulls from our training in Hypnobirthing, Lamaze, and years of birth doula work! It is an interactive, laid back birth class full of information for you and your birth support tailored to birthing in the Twin Cities!

We have opening’s in both our March Express Class, as well as our April Series & Express Classes’, these classes are great for people birthing in May, June & July!

Whether you are planning a medicated, unmedicated birth, or have no idea what your options are this class is for you! We have both 4 week series, One Day Express Classes, and offer personalized childbirth education classes. Check out our website for dates!

Our class is taught by Ellee, our resident lactation expert. Ellee was trained as a Breastfeeding Counselor by Childbirth International, and is currently pursing becoming an IBCLC.

This is a 2 hour class for only $50, and includes both you and a support person.
