Childbirth Classes

Crafted Birth

These comprehensive childbirth classes cover all aspects of pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum care, including medicated and non-medicated pain management. We focus on informed decision-making, helping each individual couple determine what kind of birth they want and what they can do to achieve it. Separate hands-on Breastfeeding and Infant Care classes give parents time to practice these important skills and prepare for caring for their baby.

Locations in Amherst and Northampton.
