"A doula is a person who attends the birthing family before, during, and just after the birth of the baby. The doula is trained to deliver emotional support from home to hospital, ease the transition into the hospital environment, and be there through changing hospital shifts and alternating provider schedules.
The birth doula kailua serves as a labor coach and information source to give the mother and her partner the added comfort of additional support throughout the entire labor. She encourages and promotes self-advocacy, informed choice, and excellent communication between the mother and care providers." -- CAPPA
If you want to expand your knowledge about the childbirth process then our class is for you. You will learn about the actual process of birth, labor comfort, and relaxation techniques. We offer this as a group and in the privacy of your own home. The workshop generally lasts approximately 3-4 hours. We encourage that this class be attended by the pregnant mom and her primary support person (who ever will be with her during the delivery).

A Mother Blessing is a beautiful and unique way to honour the mother, spend time with her, share stories, debrief fears and to instill confidence and strength.A Mother Blessing can be a completely healing and loving time for a mother-to-be, at a time when we need to nurture our mothers more than ever.
Through the practice of prenatal yoga, expectant mammas can develop strength, stamina and stability while becoming aware of how the practice needs to be modified for their changing bodies. With this connection we turn inwards to cultivate internal resources we will draw on during labor and birth. Therefore we have on our staff, a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) who teaches private classes and a weekly class atAloha Yoga Kula located in Kailua.
Even families who wish to birth privately, without a doula attending their birth, can still benefit from prenatal support. Our prenatal support package includes:
Our 90 minutes prenatal consultations are a great way to give an expecting family an extra boost of confidence. During the consultation,you will learn some tips & tricks for coping with labor and effective ways to communicate your desires to your care provider. These consultations are especially beneficial to families who are not planning to hire a doula for their upcoming birth.
Belly casting is a great way to document the time you spent carrying your little one(s). Many people use them as a "bowl" as decoration on a dresser or table in the nursery. Some people choose to mount and hang them on the wall. Whatever you choose to do, you won't be disappointed, this keepsake will last a lifetime.
Dynamics change as a family expands. This is a fun and interactive workshop for big brother or sister to be. It is designed for ages 2-12. We understand that children learn through play and hands on activities. During this class the children will be able to express their feelings about mom being pregnant and welcoming the new baby. They will learn what the new baby will look like, sound like, and feel like. They will also learn how to bond with the new baby and ways help out momma. Each workshop is designed to accommodate each family's needs and wants.
