Peaceful Beginning

Birth and Baby Class

About The Peaceful Birth Class

Peaceful Birth Class

Class includes Breastfeeding and Newborn Care

Instructor - Cheryl Orengo, BS, ICCE

In these trying times you want your pregnancy and birth to be as normal as possible. I am teaching one virtual Zoom, Saturday class each month.  Pregnancy is a time to nurture yourself and get ready for labor, birth and your newborn baby. This 6 hour class will help you to be a stronger, more confident laboring woman and will help you and your birth partner work together during labor & birth and with your newborn.

I have been teaching childbirth education for 35 years, led hundreds and hundreds of doula clients through labor and birth for over 33 years and I trained doulas for DONA for 17 years so I can teach you the methods I taught my doula students. 

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. You can't plan birth but you can learn to be a strong laboring woman and your partner can learn how to help you so you can have the most peaceful birth possible.
