Family Bonding Series (Part 1)

Couples Connection for Labor & Birth
with Barb Buckner Suarez & Nicolette Wessling

Birth doesn’t always stick to a plan-- it’s unpredictable and that can leave you both feeling vulnerable. So, what CAN you count on? In this section of our Family Bonding Series, you’ll learn how your connection to one another is the constant that can help set you up for success as a new family-- no matter how your birth unfolds.

Barb Buckner Suarez is a childbirth and family educator with over twenty years of practical experience both inside and outside the classroom. She helps families navigate all the twists and turns that occur as they move through pregnancy toward birth and new parenting. Nicolette Wessling, owner of Brave Birth Doula Care, is a birth and postpartum doula and childbirth educator who has supported nearly 180 families.

The cost for this class is $25. It is open to Brave Birth families as well as the community. If you have hired a Brave Birth Doula for support you are entitled to two complimentary classes in this series. Payment is due with check/cash to the instructor the evening of the class.
