The Lamaze online class is designed based on years of research to help simplify your birth process with an informed approach that helps alleviate your fears and manage pain. You will get the same information here as you would in a 6 week Lamaze class. This course offers evidenced based information via video, text, handouts, recommended podcasts and readings. 

Stork and Cradle strongly believes birth is a normal physical, spiritual, and social rite of passage for families. Women and their partners are encouraged to tap into their inner stores of strength, knowledge, and intuition as preparation for birth.

Molly Booth, Expectant Mother

The class was absolutely wonderful and we are feeling so much more educated, prepared, and realistic about the birthing process after taking her Breastfeeding, Child Care, and Childbirth classes. It was an invaluable experience for us and she managed the time and classes so well! I would highly recommend her to anyone prepping for a baby.
