This will be a 6 week comprehensive childbirth education class, led by Heather McCullough, CPM. This course will include The Six Steps of how to get evidence based care in your birth, as well as preparation for childbirth, breastfeeding, and newborn care. But beyond that, the Savvy Parents course will give expecting parents:
- tools to evaluate and process the onslaught of information and advice that every new parent receives,
- encouragement in claiming their own parenting instincts,
- guidance in setting healthy boundaries with family members,
- and practice in respectfully confronting medical care providers, family and/or friends who give flawed advice.

Birth is my passion. Walking with women and their families through all that is pregnancy, birth and the "4th trimester" brings me the greatest joy. There is no better "job," and I'm thankful every day to be in the service of my clients.
More than 20 years ago I helped my first client and friend give birth. The path was set. More than 500 births later, this is still the work that feeds my heart in the way that nothing else can.
When I was new to birth, my "tool kit" that I brought with me included lots of physical items - tennis balls, a birth ball and it's pump, heat packs... the list goes on. Since then, my tools became much more integrated into who I am as a person.
I became a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM), and was blessed to work at an amazing birth center in Portland, Oregon. If you have 8 minutes, feel free to watch this lovely Andaluz Waterbirth Center Video. I caught a few of those babies, though please note that my hair was very short!
Now that I'm here in Chicago, I'm able to provide labor support services, placenta encapsulation, and birth tub and breast pump rentals. I'm now also providing Hypnobabies® Childbirth Classes!
