Childbirth Education

We believe that childbirth education should be comprehensive, interactive, and fun!

Each of these courses will offer you a wealth of evidence-based information, give you a toolbox of effective comfort & relaxation techniques, help your partner gain confidence in supporting you, equip and empower you to self advocate, and provide you with knowledge of the birth process so you can embark on your birthing journey with informed choices. 

We want you to leave any of our courses with information and excitement about this significant time in your life!

For more details on each course, go to the course booking page!

All courses are created for any birthing person, regardless of your birth preferences (i.e hospital/home, medicated/unmedicated, etc).

Currently classes will be held in person - please be flexible if we need to switch to only virtual. 

 

We follow CDC and Washoe County guidelines for Covid-19. 

Instructor (Danielle) is vaccinated.

All courses have a limited class size. To hold your spot we require a deposit.

Cost covers two attendees (you+partner or other support person), a comprehensive binder, handouts, and access to exclusive client resource and information; and depending on the course - access to [M]otherboard Birth's online birth planning app. 

*Although we can't accept insurance, we believe birth classes and doula support should be attainable for all - we can offer payment plans and sliding scales for those who need -- just ask!

 

Seven week series

  • A full scope once-a-week course lasting for 7 two-and-a-half hour sessions.

  • This course is our all encompassing course, it will cover all things late pregnancy, birth, and postpartum related, as well as diving into full spectrum newborn care, nutrition, mental health, advocating for yourself & more.

  • This course includes [M]otherboard Birth's parent access to online birth planning ($50 value)

  • You can take this course at anytime during pregnancy, but it is encouraged for the last session to be in your mid-late 3rd trimester so that the information is fresh - but when you take it is entirely up to you, all are welcome! 
    Investment: $370

Full Day Class

  • A one-time 9 1/2 hour class.

  • This course will cover what to expect during labor, birth, postpartum, mental health, advocating for yourself, and more! It will cover as much basic newborn care that time will allow - for full spectrum Newborn Care, the class would need to be taken separately due to time constraints. 

  • This course is great for those wanting a lot of information but who don't have time for the Seven Week Series. It is our second most comprehensive course.

  • This course includes [M]otherboard Birth's parent access to online birth planning ($50 value)

  • You can take this course at anytime during pregnancy, but it is encouraged to be in your mid-late 3rd trimester so that the information is fresh - but when you take it is entirely up to you, all are welcome!
    Investment: $270

  • Investment: $50

Private Courses

  • Individualized full scope course in your home. It can mimic the structure of the Seven Week Series or Full Day Class; or you can pick and choose topics to build your own course (I provide you with topics to choose from and you can request others if they aren't listed). Whichever you choose, private classes are always enhanced with individualized instruction/discussion based on your needs/interest/situation. 

  • The amount of hours for the entire course is based on the class structure or topics you choose and is decided in advance.

  • We schedule the classes based on our combined availability and the class time can be split in many different ways. This is all discussed together. 

  • You can invite family members to attend any session. *Extra charges occur for another pregnant family to attend. 

  • Private classes can cover all things late pregnancy, birth, and postpartum related, as well as full spectrum newborn care. You will receive a topic list as you express interest in building a private course with me. 

  • Private courses include [M]otherboard Birth's parent access to online birth planning ($50 value)

  • You can take private courses at anytime during pregnancy, but it is encouraged for the last session to be in your mid-late 3rd trimester so that the information is fresh - but when you take it is entirely up to you, all are welcome!

  • To book or inquire about a private course, email Danielle at danielle@harvestmoonbirthservices.com

  • Investment: $35/hour

Date Night Series

  • A two night series - 3 hours each, on Friday evenings one week apart

  • This series will be held at a restaurant with dinner provided, dress up or down - up to you!

  • Although all courses have an emphasis on building your village by meeting classmates, this series provides a social and fun environment to mingle.

  • This series will cover the big topics of labor, birth and postpartum.

  • This series is great for those who don't want every piece of information but wants the big stuff along with a fun outing to meet people.

  • You can take this course at anytime during pregnancy, but it is encouraged for the last session to be in your mid-late 3rd trimester so that the information is fresh - but when you take it is entirely up to you, all are welcome!
