Prenatal Education for the Modern Family.
Doulas of Capitol Hill offers tailored classes that bridge childbirth preparation with a modern, hands on approach geared towards busy families in the DC/MD/VA community.
We offer group and in home classes that cover the best of various childbirth techniques, including Lamaze, the Bradley Method, Hypnobirthing/Hypnobabies, Postpartum and Breastfeeding Basics. You will learn about pregnancy health, relaxation, labor anatomy and physiology, pain management, and common variations and complications. Each class series will include hands on activities, child birthing videos, relaxation methods and practice exercises, designed specifically for labor and delivery in Washington, D.C. and the surrounding hospitals. You will also get to meet and socialize with other soon to be parents!
Currently our 8 hour class series is held at the Jewish Community Center in Dupont and our 5 hour class is held over brunch
at Art and Soul Restaurant on Capitol Hill.
Our classes include thorough and judgment-free discussion of all labor and delivery scenarios, including epidurals and c-sections so you are prepared for whatever situation you choose or that may arise.
If you are not interested in a group course Doulas of Capitol Hill also offers in-home, private, and semi- private (take a class with a friend!) classes that are tailored to you. Learn the basics and focus on your goals, fears, and desires from the comfort of your living room.
