LAMAZE CLASSES

 

OVERVIEW

Based on the Lamaze Philosophy of Birth, Balancing Birth LLC offers a variety of fun and highly interactive, evidence-based natural childbirth and parenting preparation classes that will get you laughing, learning, breathing, and connecting!  Small class sizes (usually between 4 and 8 couples or families) provide an intimate adult-learning (or keiki-learning!) environment, where questions are asked, lively discussion is encouraged, and parents leave well-informed of their choices and more prepared for the work of labor, birth, and parenting.  Classes are offered in both Hilo and Waimea, on the Big Island of Hawai’i.
