Connect - Identify - Equip

Flourishing Families (formerly Your Birth Experience, or YBE) is NOT a method of childbirth – it is a holistic system designed to inspire individuals to connect with what is most important to them, identify their needs, and become equipped to create memories that they will cherish for a lifetime. 

YBE helps you understand the physiological process of Normal Physiologic Birth, while also offering non-biased information about interventions and options you might encounter in your birth setting. Whether you plan to birth at home, in a birth center or hospital, medicated or unmedicated, Your Birth Experience allows you to create your own positive and memorable experience.

The Flourishing Families curriculum includes Your Birth Experience, Your Baby Experience, and Your Breastfeeding Experience classes.

We will explore guided visualizations, personality styles, decision making, nutrition, exercise, writing birth plans, body balance, and relaxation, so that you can prepare in a way that works for YOU!  YBE is designed to equip you with tools to help you learn in the moment and have confidence to go with the flow of expected and unexpected variations.
