relax and learn with your partner
Learn in luxury with our babymoon and childbirth education in an unforgettable retreat setting. How do you feel about childbirth classes?
If you’re like many first time parents, you might feel a little dread about cramming in classes after a long day of work in a clinical environment.
Or, maybe you worry that those cookie-cutter 4-6 week series classes that haven’t been updated in years won’t actually take into account your unique situation or desires for your birth story.
Or, you might wonder how in the world you’ll fit in classes during that busy 3rd trimester when you will also be preparing the nursery, having more frequent doctor’s appointments - and while getting more tired and more anxious.
It doesn’t have to be that way!
Imagine childbirth education that not only teaches you everything you need to know, but also helps you relax and enjoy your pregnancy.
Imagine spending your childbirth classes while also enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Oregon Coast or Mount Hood.
Imagine pairing your childbirth education with a luxurious babymoon that brings you and your partner closer together while learning about and preparing for your little one’s arrival.
You don’t have to imagine when you join the Birthing Stone Comfort in Labor Retreat.
This is the luxurious babymoon experience you’ve been dreaming about.
We believe that childbirth education and comfort can coexist together. In fact, our goal is to make sure you are treated like royalty while you’re here.
We also believe that childbirth education should take place during your second trimester. Why? This is the time when you’ll probably settle into a nice (and more comfortable) groove after that first trimester. This is the time when you can relax a bit, learn all you need without feeling any pressure, and enjoy the experience of your pregnancy.
Sure, you could cram all the necessary info into a few nights at the local hospital, or you could:
Take breaks between classes and walk along the beach with your partner…
Enjoy an in-room massage after a day of learning...
Lounge on a cozy couch in front of a fire in a luxury home instead of sitting in an uncomfortable classroom…
Meet other couples who could become life-long friends as you journey along your birth stories together...
You’ll benefit from not only our combined years of experience supporting parents and babies as doulas but also the beautiful atmosphere and fun experience that is sure to offer something for every parent. Rest assured that your voice will be heard and your desires taken into account! We don’t force a certain philosophy of birth or parenting - instead, we focus on what you want to learn. Take a deep breath - this is your time - you’ll have a great experience in the process.
- Get away from the hustle and bustle of your daily life to have some connection time with your partner and your baby.
- Escape the monotony of work, appointments, and long days to spend the weekend at the beach - enjoying your babymoon - this is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.
- Soak in the information during the gently-paced class. The private and intimate environment allows you to focus on what you’re learning (rather than cramming class in after work)
- Connect with one another and focus on working together during the birth and after baby comes.
- Partners: you’ll take home expert tips for support during birth and knowing how to be involved during the newborn period too.
When it comes to preparing for your baby’s arrival, you truly can have a first class experience.
Last night I took the Comfort in Labor class and it was excellent! I took the childbirth class through my provider for my first baby and this class blew it out of the water! There were so many relaxation strategies, labor positions, and birthing positions that I didn't know about!
I also was provided with the confidence and knowledge to make sure I am made aware of all my options during labor and delivery.” -Annie Rexford-Boren
