Childbirth Education Classes
Birth Louisville offers Empowered Birth, a seven week series of Lamaze childbirth classes in Louisville, and Second+ Time Around, an afternoon workshop for experienced parents who are preparing for the birth of a new baby. Birth Louisville’s childbirth education offerings are informative and interactive, preparing parents for labor & birth through discussion, small group activities, hands-on practices, labor rehearsals and comfort measures practices. Classes & workshops empower families to make educated decisions and maintain the respect and integrity for the process of labor and birth.
Doulas have been referred to as "labor and delivery tour guides." Doula comes from an ancient Greek word meaning "to serve"—and, in the spirit of this outreach, the word now refers to a woman who is a professional labor assistant and advocate for mother and baby. As a doula, Angela Garvin helps families create peaceful, loving birth experiences by providing support and information before, during and after the birth. Angela acts as an advocate for families, helping them to have the birth experience they desire.
