Let’s pretend you just read the positive sign on your pregnancy test!
Now the questions begin…
… and the list goes on!
Did you know there is an early pregnancy class? A class that can help you navigate many of these questions? A class that will help you create community. A teacher who can direct you to incredible local birth resources such as: midwives, obstetricians, chiropractors, mommy groups, doula's, and much, much more.
Birth Boot Camp has created an Early Pregnancy Class to assist new moms in making educated decisions from the beginning of their pregnancy. Preparing for an AMAZING pregnancy from the start gives you the opportunity to find the best care providers, connect with your local birth community, maximize your health and wellness, and replace any fears with excitement.
How do you take this class? Shenandoah Births hosts Birth Boot Camp Early Pregnancy Classes. Find out here when the next class is being hosted or contact Shenandoah Births to schedule a private class. You can take this class as early as the day you get a positive pregnancy test until about 20 weeks, after which I would encourage you to take a class to prepare for birth.
Are you unable to attend a live class? That’s ok! You can purchase your copy of the Early Pregnancy Class Guide. And if you ever have any questions, please know that it is our pleasure to help answer them!

When is the best time to take a childbirth class?
It’s surprisingly sooner than you might think!
The best time to begin taking a childbirth class is around 25 weeks gestation. Most comprehensive childbirth classes last around 10+ weeks.
You really want to complete the class by the time you are term (37-38 weeks gestation). While many women will go past 40 weeks gestation, a few of you will delivery a little sooner and it is better to be prepared!
Birth Boot Camp has created an AMAZING, modern, comprehensive childbirth curriculum and Shenandoah Births is thrilled to bring these classes to Winchester! This 10 week series will fly by as you have fun and create community with other expectant couples! Click here to learn more about the Birth Boot Camp curriculum.
