Childbirth Classes, 2 hrs, $150.00 per couple

Learn the three childbirth methods, labor & delivery expectations and breathing & relaxation exercises. Nurse Jackie’s experience and creative method of teaching combines videos, lecturing and hands on training that provide you and your partner with the tools to manage your labor and delivery.

Understand and practice:

  • The Lamaze Technique: Even if this is your first pregnancy, chances are good you’ve heard of the Lamaze technique (or at least Lamaze breathing). However, there’s more to this method than just inhaling deeply. As the most widely used childbirth method in the U.S., the Lamaze technique focuses on building the mother’s confidence and involves learning about the birth process, relaxation techniques and of course, breathing exercises designed to help moms through contractions.
  • The Bradley Method: This method, which involves both parents, prepares the mother to deliver her baby without pain medications and educates the baby’s father in birth coaching techniques. The Bradley Method also allows both parents to go through labor rehearsals that include relaxation techniques, massage and other methods designed to help mothers cope with the intensity of labor and delivery.
  • Birthing From Within: A holistic approach to childbirth, Birthing From Within offers parents a general informative teaching experience as well as multi-sensory processes that are designed to help mothers discover how labor works and how to keep calm during the process while coping with any unexpected surprises. Though the goal of Birthing From Within is education about natural childbirth, information about C-sections, epidurals and other interventions are also given.

Now i have my beautiful baby and I am very grateful to the specialists of the birthing center for their invaluable help!!!

Hello - My name is Ann, I'm from the Ukraine, I came to NY with no insurance (I'm a "self paid" person) In the Last 3 months by recommendations, I had experience to deal with Dr Lisa Eng (The Birthing Center of NY, 6702 3rd Ave) and took a "Childbirth & Breastfeeding" with nurse "God"-Jackie Chapman. Dr Eng was checking me (weight, blood pressure, baby condition) every week.

When time of birthing was coming (started contractions)->I went to the birthing center, where nurse Jackie told me what to do how to reach faster time of labor and helped me to release the pain through physical moves, walking, breathing and hugs. It's really helped me a lot, without it, I didn't even know how to handle that strong pain and though only anesthesia (but I heard this is has a bad effect to the child) or hands of good specialists.. I choose 2nd option and did not regret it!

The moment of labor was pretty much hard, but at the finish line you will forget fast that pain after you get the baby in  your arms. Dr Lisa helped me a lot during labor by telling me what to do every second and told me about my babies progress (that cheered me up and gave me strength).

Now i have my beautiful baby and I am very grateful to the specialists of the birthing  center for their invaluable help!!!😌🙏🏼

Nurse Jackie birthing class – Highly Recommended!

Nurse Jackie gave us a private birthing class and made me, my husband, and our 4 year old son feel comfortable right from the start. Her teaching style is hands-on and informative, and we learned a lot in a relatively short period. She answered all of our questions patiently and made us feel more than capable of going through this process again. Highly recommend!

Today my husband and I went to the childbirthing and breastfeeding class. It was a great experience

Today my husband and I went to the childbirthing and breastfeeding class. It was a great experience. I wish we have that class before my childbirth.  Nurse Jackie taught us a real life situation about how to handle baby and multitasking at the same time. Breastfeeding techniques are very important to a new mom . Thank Nurse Jackie for being very patience on us and offering us a nice class !

We are so happy to have taken Nurse Jackie’s birthing class

We are so happy to have taken Nurse Jackie’s birthing class and feel more at ease on what to expect when our newborn arrives. When we first arrived we were nervous, but Nurse Jackie was very welcoming and warm. We were especially grateful that she could accommodate us, as we had signed up the day before. Nurse Jackie’s class was very informative. We learned about how to breath through labor, options for our birth plan, helpful tips for breastfeeding, and how to hold, clean and swaddle our newborn. At the end of the session, we received certificates of completion of the course, useful samples of ointment and gentle detergent, ink pads for baby footprints, and a document to keep track of our newborn’s health to communicate with our pediatrician. On our way out, Nurse Jackie gave us both huge hugs and reminded us that we could contact her at any point with questions, even at 2:00 AM when we’re in labor. We were very grateful for Nurse Jackie’s professionalism, expertise, guidance, and warm kindness! We would highly recommend Nurse Jackie’s birthing class to all expecting moms!

For my tour nurse Jackie greeted me with a big smile and hug

I was at the birthing center for a tour, on May 23rd 2017. Even before my tour nurse Jackie was very helpful and always kept in touch with me over the phone and vice versa. The day I went into the birthing center for my tour nurse Jackie greeted me with a big smile and hug. She showed me around and explained everything to me. Although my health insurance at this time does not cover the facility fee they still took time to meet with me. I filled out all the paperwork and I even by accident left my insurance card at the center and nurse Jackie was kind enough to bring it to her home with my medical records that I would be bringing with me to their other location in Brooklyn since that is closer to me. After my tour I contacted Dr. Lisa Eng and left her a message she called me back that same day and explained everything to me and answered all my questions. I had a few being that I may have to birth at the hospital due to my insurance coverage. Dr. Eng was extremely helpful. I see how much the clinical team at the NY birthing center care for their patients.

We loved nurse Jackie! She’s funny, kind and super experienced!

My husband and I took a private birthing class which was instructed by nurse Jackie. Her class was informative, interesting and put both my husband and I at ease. I looked for a class that offered infant care, birthing prep and breastfeeding education. Not only did the class touch upon all these it exceeded my expectations. I loved that the entire class we were in "labor" that was my favorite part because I feel it really prepares both partners especially my husband, it helped make him aware about what to do during labor and also informed him that he is an integral part of labor. We loved nurse Jackie! She's funny, kind and super experienced!

This new birthing center is very clean Definitely recommend it!

I'm a new Mom. I did a lot of reading online these passed weeks. I was there today with my son, Darwin meeting Nurse Jackie. She explained a lot of breastfeeding techniques to me step by step. Also I got a chance to know more about Darwin's behavior. Other staffs are very friendly to us. This new birthing center is very clean Definitely recommend it!

Hi, Jackie, that was a special day…

Hi, Jackie, that was a special day, when I came with my sister to the Birthing class in Brooklyn center and in a light, playful but thoughtful form learned the basic aspects of this key moment in a life of every living being. You guided us through the mazes of our blurry interpretation of the events into clear plan of actions consequence and confident understanding of happening 😊 Your confidence and sense of humor made it look like a simple but meaningful event, beginning of a long way and see the wast of potential inside to be brave, listening to yourself and following own voice of heart and intuitive understanding. Thank you so much, your daughter was sweet and modest, nurturing and calming as you. And those dolls are smelling and looking very nice, as well as entire coziness of the center, bringing the feeling of home. Little cold. It was rainy that day...
