Los Angeles Childbirth Classes & Lactation Support

Are you new to this whole pregnancy and parenting thing? Or, maybe you want to do if differently this time around?

My childbirth classes offer a very balanced approach with content tailored to your unique needs.

How you choose to prepare for your pregnancy, birth, and parenting experience should be as unique as your are. I love getting to know who you are and starting from there.  Drawing upon your personal beliefs, goals, strengths and instincts, together we can develop a roadmap that feels right.

Hi, I'm Sharon.

I have been a nurse for more than three decades, having the opportunity to prepare over 2,000 couples for birth through my childbirth classes and assist over 4,000 with breastfeeding. In 2012 I began my own business preparing families for pregnancy, birth. breastfeeding and parenting.

I love working with first-time parents and seeing the lights go on as they start to "know what they don't know". It is heartwarming to feel their eagerness to be informed and sense their confidence build as they prepare for their parenting journey.

My time as a labor and delivery nurse formed my philosophy that as we are all unique in our strengths, perspectives and life experiences, so should the way in which we prepare for this new life adventure.

It is a hugely rewarding and life-affirming role to watch parents and babies grow! The beautiful thing is that there is no one way to create and raise a family.
