What You Will Learn

Learn as a couple how to responsibly steward your decisions surrounding pregnancy and birth. 

We explore the physiological, emotional, and spiritual aspects of childbearing through Biblical principles founded in God’s Word.

 

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
Proverbs 1:7 

CLASS ONE- May 1st

Birth Philosophy & Nutrition

God’s Word is the foundation for all aspects of life, including pregnancy and birth. We look at how birth philosophies are either shaped by this truth or by opposing worldviews and the impact that can have on your birth. 

Next we dive into the foundations of preparing and nurturing our bodies for the marathon of pregnancy and birth.

Yes! Husbands are not only able but HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to take this class with you. We understand when circumstances prevent this from being possible but our goal at Surrender Birth is to equip couples and we think it is very helpful to have husbands as involved as possible in the learning and decision making process.

Unfortunately due to space restrictions and the amount of content we are covering we ask that you find other arrangements for your other children.

Yes! We cover basics and dive deeper into these different topics. Many first time couples feel prepared and equipped after taking this class. Our aim is to equip couples from a variety of different birth histories to steward the responsibility well that God has given with each new pregnancy.

Yes. Although we don’t cover all the possible things you may face with a hospital birth, we do teach the importance of learning what is happening in your body during pregnancy and labor in order to understand how to best evaluate additional interventions that may be needed and the different models of care.

Yes. It is best to be prepared with knowledge and ways of coping with labor. The best tool we have for birth is to be as knowledgeable as possible about what’s happening in our bodies and why. God designed this process and it helps to understand what that process is, even if you are planning to have pain relief at some point in your labor. It is usually advised to wait until active labor to get pain relief and so it is helpful to know ways to cope with labor until that point.

You are most definitely welcome to take this class if you are not a Christian. However, we are unapologetically teaching from a Reformed Christian Worldview, and believe God’s Word is the standard from which we gain knowledge and understanding.
