Asheville Birth Classes & New Parent Education
Preparing to welcome a baby to your family is a big deal! Whether it's your first time or not, you are getting ready for a big, life-changing event. Our team of doulas and educators is here for you from the moment you find out you're expecting through your early days with your baby. In addition to our private, in-home childbirth education, we offer these small group classes:
Doula Meet & Greet
Connect with other expectant & new parents and some of our birth and postpartum doulas. Make connections and expand your community as you prepare to welcome your new baby(ies) and adjust to life with little ones.
Our doulas will be on hand to answer any questions you have about giving birth and adjusting to life with babies. These events are FREE, child-friendly, open to anyone, and take place every 3rd Saturday of the month from 11-12 at Nest Organics.

"Birth Basics" is a three-hour crash course in what to expect during childbirth and how to cope with common discomforts. Taught by our Labor & Delivery Nurse/Certified Doula team of co-owners, you'll get all the evidence-based, up-to-date information you want to feel informed, prepared, and empowered to have the birth you want - without any bias or judgement of your choices and preferences.
