Krista was an amazing Lamaze instructor. My husband and I learned so much from her classes and feel more prepared for our birthing experience. The techniques she uses to teach the concepts included a lot of hands on and visual learning which really helped us to remember the key takeaways. I really enjoyed the variety of activities. She is also just genuinely a caring person who made us feel very supported and heard. I highly recommend Krista for her Lamaze classes or as a doula. Thank you!!

Birth Plan/Preferences development
Class Format: Beginning in 2024, weeknight class will be four consecutive weeks. The fourth class will focus on breastfeeding, parenting & connection with experts Christina Cassidy IBCLC, Melissa Reali (Concious Parenting expert) and Sam Scalpone (OT, infant massage therapist). We offer a series of three night classes (6:30pm - 9pm) and a two-day weekend series (9:15am - 1pm or 2pm - 6pm). In addition, all classes are limited to a total of five couples at maximum. Check out our class dates below or request dates that work best for you and your partner.
Class Rates: $215 per couple (we highly encourage you to bring a partner!) for weekend and 2023 weekday classes. Beginning in 2024, the rate is $300 per couple for weeknight classes as they will include our new breastfeeding, parenting & connection class. Save when you use our doula service, as well!
Private Classes: Prefer a private, one-on-one class at your home? Or do you have a group of friends that would all like to take class together? Private classes are available starting at an additional $200 per couple. This fee may be waived depending on group size.
We felt so much more confident for labor and delivery thanks to Krista’s Lamaze classes, provided resources, and 1:1 talks we had with her. We felt seen, informed, and supported from day 1 to present day. My entire pregnancy Krista was just a call or text away from providing whatever support was needed.
