Seminars & Workshops Birth Education Class

Stephanie Heintzeler, a German educated midwife and acupuncturist as well as a US licensed doula with over 1,200 birth experiences, is offering German language childbirth education classes  in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Stephanie’s unique approach to childbirth classes prepares parents-to-be for labor, birth and the postpartum phase. Her main goal is to leave parents empowered and with a birth plan so you feel prepared and calm towards birth and postpartum phase.

Join us for a 4-hour-crash-course that will prepare you for birth and the post partum phase.

Topics include:
Pregnancy-issues, signs of labor, baby positions, phases of labor, role of the partner during labor, breathing techniques, positions to ease pain (including massage!), relaxation exercises, procedures/protocol at hospital/birthing center, medications (epidural, other meds), medical terminology, interventions (c-section), communication with OB/midwife, breastfeeding, post partum phase, and handling of the baby.

There will be a 10 minute break about every hour and classes will move from “passive” time with lecture to more active phases involving exercises.

You will take home helpful info sheets and a German-English description of medical terms.

The class is for couples, but you can certainly attend alone or with whom ever will join your birth!


$ 297 (per couple)

If we have 3 or less couples attending, we may conduct the class in a private setting in Manhattan or Brooklyn (or where ever is most comfortable for everyone).

As Stephanie is an active Doula and might need to attend a birth, there is a small chance that the class may be postponed.

Note: We will have water for the participants. Feel free to bring your own snacks. There will be a 10-15 minute break, but feel free to drink and eat whenever you (or your baby…) feel like it!
