Birth Choices on the Palouse

You wouldn’t set out on a whitewater rafting trip on a new river without a guide, right? Even if you’ve been planning your trip for a while and are excited about the journey, there’s a lot of unfamiliar territory to navigate.

Having a baby is a lot like that – and we’re here to provide a solid place to put in at. Birth Choices on the Palouse is a free monthly class that will give you an overview of your pregnancy, birth and postpartum options in Moscow, Pullman, and the LC Valley. Whether you’re planning a baby or currently pregnant, we can help sift through the information overload and identify the resources you need and want.

If you’re already confident in your choice of provider and/or birth location, Birth Choices is your opportunity to learn about additional pregnancy resources and practitioners. The number one thing we hear in class is, “Wow, I didn’t know I could _______…”

At Birth Choices on the Palouse, Rebecca Haley, doula and educator with Palouse Women’s Wellness, will answer questions like:

  • What providers are there on the Palouse?
  • What provider should I see to get the birth experience I desire?
  • What is a doula and why would I want one?
  • What is the difference between a midwife and doula?
  • What are my pain relief options in labor?
  • Is home birth safe with a midwife?
  • What classes can I take to learn about childbirth, baby care, etc.?
  • What supplemental resources are available throughout my pregnancy – yoga, swimming, chiropractic, acupuncture?

Birth Choices on the Palouse sessions are held the 2nd Thursday of each month from 5:30-7:00pm. Partners are encouraged to attend!
