What is Christian Childbirth?

Christian childbirth is not a term to define specific comfort measures, positions, or tools for use during labor. Christian childbirth exists when a woman chooses to live out her faith in Christ in labor. The decision to become a Christian affects every aspect of who you are and what you choose to do. In that way, being Christian will affect how you choose to give birth.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Will My Partner and I Learn?

The Christian Childbirth Class is a six week course consisting of weekly classes (for private classes, these are scheduled into four weekly classes). It is a complete and comprehensive childbirth education program in which we also examine what the Bible says about pregnancy, birth, and the newborn. You will learn valuable information on relaxation techniques and gain confidence in yourself and your birth through hands-on learning, fun activities, workbook pages, videos and demonstrations.
