Your Birth Boot Camp class will give you the tools you need to have an amazing birth! You will fill your “toolbox” with a variety of tools to use during your labor including relaxation, comfort measures, labor positions, and our top 10 tools for partners!
Online childbirth classes are taught by Hollie Hauptly and Cheryl Amelang, morning-talk-show style. We’ve made birth classes interesting, entertaining, and educational! They are as close to a live childbirth class as possible, from the comfort of your living room instead of ours.

**This class also includes The Birth Boot Camp Breastfeeding Class, an extra 3 hours all about breastfeeding taught by Mellanie Shepherd, IBCLC.
HOME & BIRTH CENTER CLASS
Our Home & Birth Center class is perfect for those planning an out-of-hospital birth. This class dives right in starting with stages of labor and giving you tools for your natural birth. We discuss natural ways of handling pain, the importance of relaxation as the key to an unmedicated birth, and how your partner can make a difference in your birth experience. We also discuss transfer, epidurals, and cesarean sections in the event that medical assistance becomes necessary. This class will build knowledge and confidence for you and your partner to have an amazing home or birth center birth!
HOSPITAL BIRTH CLASS
Birthing in the hospital? This class is for you! Our hospital class is designed for the couple who wants more than your average class. We cover topics that are specific to this birth place such as induction, policies that impact your birth, and epidurals. You’ll have more education, more fun, more relaxation and labor practice. This class gives you the ability to make informed decisions as your birth unfolds and have an amazing experience.
BREASTFEEDING: THE ULTIMATE MRE
This course, taught by Mellanie Sheppard, IBCLC, includes: expert advice, specific instructions on how to breastfeed, tips on how to properly latch and prevent nursing pain, how milk production works, troubleshooting problems that may come up, pumping, introducing bottles and returning to work, what to expect as the baby grows, and much more. In addition, you will have downloadable access to several pages from our beautiful workbooks relating to breastfeeding.
**Please note that this course is included in our Comprehensive Class
HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE ONLINE CLASSES?
You will have 12 months of unlimited access to the class(es) you are registered for.
HOW CAN I GET THE MOST OUT OF ONLINE CLASSES?
Treating your online classes as you would a live class is the best bit of advice. Pick a class night, put it in your calendar, then do the homework (relaxation, Chow Charts, exercises, discussions with each other and/or care provider, etc.) during the week. Don’t try to cram the classes all at once, even if you are getting a late start. Space them out by at least a few days and work on the weekly assignments even if it’s not for an entire week. Be accountable to each other. Other useful tips can be found once you log on after registration.

WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF THE BIRTH BOOT CAMP ONLINE CLASSES?
The first thing you will watch is the actual class. Periodically, you might stop the video and have a short discussion with one another. At some point during the class, you may pause the class video, scroll down to the birth video, and then come back to the class for more discussion. Each week also includes exercises, relaxation downloads, and a comfort measure to practice. The relaxation exercises are also written in the Field Manual so you can practice them together.
