Fat Positive Childbirth Classes

Traditional childbirth education classes are boring and often only serve the narrative of a thin, cis, straight, white married couples. This leaves gaps in knowledge and satisfaction and can lead to poor retention of information.

Big Fat Pregnancy’s childbirth educators both come from a background in adult education and provide inclusive childbirth education focusing on the choices available to you, advocacy and decision-making skills, and help you mentally prepare for the childbirth journey.

We use interaction and hands on teaching methods randing from discussion, meditations, journaling, visualizations, art, dialogue, time with your support person(s) and more!

Contemporary childbirth education courses often lack engagement and tend to cater predominantly to a narrow demographic – namely, thin, cisgender, straight, white married couples. This approach results in significant gaps in knowledge and satisfaction among participants, ultimately leading to suboptimal retention of crucial information.

At Big Fat Pregnancy, our childbirth educators bring a wealth of experience in adult education to the table. We are committed to providing a comprehensive and inclusive childbirth education experience that centers on empowering individuals with knowledge about available choices, enhancing advocacy and decision-making skills, and facilitating mental preparedness for the childbirth journey.

Our teaching methods prioritize interaction and hands-on learning experiences. Through a diverse range of activities such as discussions, meditations, journaling, visualizations, artistic expression, dialogues, and dedicated time with your support person(s), our classes are carefully crafted with a focus on key elements: Informed Consent, Self-Advocacy, Intuition, Affirmations, Meditations, Drawing Your Birth, Labrynth, and Self-Reflection.

By incorporating these elements into our childbirth education curriculum, we strive to create a dynamic and engaging learning environment that ensures participants are well-equipped, informed, and empowered as they embark on their childbirth journey.
