Classes taught in Long Beach. Contact AM Reggie for upcoming locations.
We view birth as a natural, albeit athletic, event, and as such you
will get prepared-- mind, body and spirit-- for the day you will meet
your baby. You will learn about and establish a practice of relaxation
(best way to work with pain), nutrition, breastfeeding, common birth
interventions, and through the process, get a chance to overcome any
fears you may have. Get educated, alleviate fears and BECOME
EMPOWERED! Your body was meant to do this, and your baby will thank
you!
