Flower City Yoga and Team Doula (3 amazing childbirth educators and doulas) are partnering to bring expectant mothers and soon-to-be parents a very special offering; Childbirth Education & Prenatal Yoga all in one place. This series will run for 10 weeks, starting April 21st. We will begin each week with a one hour prenatal yoga practice for mama-to-be and then partners will join for the second hour of childbirth education. This is the perfect way to prepare your mind and body for the best birth possible.
We offer a unique a-la-carte format, where the class topics will be posted ahead of time, and you can choose which classes resonate most with you, or you can take all ten. We are a team of expert birth practitioners who are passionate about supporting women through pregnancy, delivery, and beyond.
