About The Peaceful Birth Class

.Peaceful Birth Class

Class includes Breastfeeding and Newborn Care

Instructor - Cheryl Orengo, BS, ICCE

Private Class in the comfort of your home with your family, pets, and/or birth team  - I am now teaching affordable private classes online in the comfort of your home.  Pregnancy is a time to nurture yourself and get ready for labor, birth and your newborn baby. This 6 hour class will give you hands-on practice and knowledge about the entire birth process as well as caring for your newborn.  The class will help you to be stronger and more confident during labor, birth and with your newborn.  

If you need a refresher course, you are worried because you have already experienced birth or just have particular needs, a private class will be perfect for you.

I am able to teach online exactly what I taught in person. I teach knowledge and skills and help you with hands-on-practice to provide the best birth experience possible.  I can't promise you an easy birth, no one can, I can't promise that you will not have pain, no one can, but I can ease your fear of the unknown, and give you the tools to have a joyous birth no matter what situation arises.

I have been teaching childbirth and parent education for 38 years, led hundreds and hundreds of doula clients through labor and birth for over 33 years and I trained doulas for DONA International for 17 years so I teach my students the methods I taught my doula trainees. 

My peaceful birth and baby class will give you the tools to have a joyous birth and an easier postpartum creating happy memories of your first weeks with your newborn.


To learn more about having a joyous and empowering birth watch a
