I’m Valerie Brewer, and if you are looking for a childbirth class near Salem, Newberg or McMinnville, I would love to share with you more about the fun, practical and comprehensive natural birth classes that I teach. I am married to my best friend, and we have three awesome kids- two boys and a baby girl. We recently moved to Oregon after my husband completed seminary in Princeton, NJ, where I worked with dozens of expectant couples over the years to help them prepare for their births together. I love creating community, and it is a joy for me to see expectant parents get to know other couples in the same stage of life and continue to support each other after their babies are born, all because they were able to connect in birth class!
I became a Certified Childbirth Educator with Birth Boot Camp in 2014 after the empowering natural birth of our second son in a hospital. I went on to later have a peaceful homebirth with our daughter. I believe that birth is a normal, healthy process that can be a life-changing, beautiful experience for those who are equipped and informed. Whether you know you want a natural birth or are just interested in learning all your options, my classes will prepare you and your partner for labor, delivery, breastfeeding and beyond.
It is my privilege to walk alongside couples in this formative season of life and see them grow in their relationship, in confidence, and in knowledge as they begin their journey as parents.
