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, confidence, knowledge, and intuition to prepare themselves to give birth. These classes are a soulful approach to birthing and breastfeeding success. We are here to mentor you in giving birth as necessary for your body, your beliefs, and your baby.
Stork and Cradle's mission is to empower women and their partners. They give you tools to make informed decisions and feel confident. This is important in order to build a trusting relationship with obstetricians and midwives so you may have a satisfying birth experience.
