Magnolia’s Birth Services
Child birth in the center is natural – which means it is not induced, assisted, or medicated. Birth in the center is for women without any risk factors in pregnancy or significant medical conditions. Our staff will be at your side to support you throughout your labor and birth. There are options to help with childbirth such as hydrotherapy, water birth, aroma therapy, low lights, and freedom of movement in our beautiful, home-like environment. We support your birth, your way.
“Birth matters, and I believe that the way a child is brought into the world has an important impact on the rest of life. Helping with that transition is an honor.”
-Anjli Aurora Hinman, CNM
You are pregnant and your body is changing so fast! If this is your first birth, you’re probably wondering what is happening, and what will birth be like? If you’ve birthed before, you may wish to prepare consciously for your next birth. Using the tools of yoga, I invite you to connect with your body, your baby and your intuition to prepare for birth and motherhood.
In class you can expect to move with your breath and intention in a slow flowing practice with gentle opening, strengthening, breathing, visualization and relaxation techniques. All of the work we do in class will help prepare you for a peaceful and joyful experience of birth.
Classes are $15 for a drop-in.
Class packages are available (8 classes for $100 or 4 classes for $54)
PLEASE NOTE: your friends, family, etc are welcome to attend class with you, however they are required to pay the drop-in fee or purchase their own package. There is also a comfortable lobby for partners or family to wait while you attend class. Thank you for understanding that participation in class = payment for class regardless of your pregnancy status.
This three-week childbirth class is designed especially for Magnolia Birth Center clients who are planning an unmedicated birth. This class is fun, hands-on and discussion-based so bring your questions and a couple pillows! It is best to enroll in this class during your third trimester, and plan to be finished by week 37.
To register, please contact instructor Mary Gillett, MS, ACBE, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Class is offered at no cost for Magnolia Birth Center clients, and $120 per couple for outside students. A new series typically begins on the first or second Thursday of each month. This class is not appropriate for children.
Please note – if you are planning to labor or birth in a tub, you must take the Waterbirth Essentials class separately. All Magnolia clients must take Hello Baby class (usually just before or after you finish Your Best Birth class.)
This is a comprehensive class that teaches easy-to-use relaxation and hypnosis techniques needed for a calm and peaceful birth.
