As a practicing birth doula, massage therapist, and teacher, Whitney works with Evidence Based Birth® (EBB) to provide a childbirth education class that teaches those expecting a new baby exactly what they need to know in today's medicalized birth environment so that they can have the birth experience they want. 

The EBB class includes two in-person 2-hour session, 4 hours of live online training, 3-month access to the incredible EBB online training videos, an EBB workbook, hands-on comfort measure training, and current insider information about hospitals and providers in the Northern VA and DC Metro areas. Classes typically run 4-6 weeks, meeting once a week during that time. Students review the online videos in their own time and join the live sessions either online or at Whitney's Vienna, VA training location.

For labor and delivery, the class focuses on techniques helpful in labor both for comfort and to help guide the baby into the best possible position for delivery.

Massage and Comfort Techniques
Workshop for Expecting Couples

Building connection and enhancing support

Especially during the third trimester, expecting women often experience discomfort, difficulty sleeping, joint pain, lower back pain, swelling of hands and feet, muscles cramps, and sometimes even nerve pain like sciatica. With just a little training, partners or friends can provide a great deal of help and relief, safely, whenever the expecting momma needs some relief.

 

Whitney teaches the basic mechanics of a few massage and stretching techniques and how to apply them safely and gently. She also helps the momma and partner learn to work together and develop routines that help manage stress and pain. This is a 2-hour class that Whitney offers both to her doula client families, to other expecting couples, and to anyone interested in providing this kind of support to an expecting mother.

 2-hour Course | $115 Per Couple ($95 for NBD Clients)
