Mission: Birth Boot Camp is committed to training couples in natural birth and breastfeeding through accessible, contemporary education.

Birth Boot Camp classes are practical, engaging, and comprehensive. Whether you are planning to give birth in a hospital, birth center or at home, you AND your partner will be equipped with the tools, information and resources you’ll need to not only have an amazing birth but a smooth and enjoyable transition into parenthood and breastfeeding. Also, if you or your partner is unable to attend one of the classes or if you are due before the final class session, you can take up to two online make-up classes for free when you register for the 10-Week Comprehensive Childbirth Class.
