Wendy Dean's Birth Zone classes, emphasize the simplicity of birth and the power of your body to do the work. 

Most of our clients are hoping for a low intervention birth at home, in a birth center, or in a hospital. Many are midwifery clients.

Whether you give birth--as most of you will--using only your own power or whether you need some help along the way, we hope you will look back on the birth of your baby with satisfaction and joy.

We wish you the best of births.

To protect the safety of our clients as measures are taken to slow the spread of the corona virus outbreak, all BirthZone classes will be held virtually beginning March 30, 2020. Once social distancing restrictions are lifted we anticipate returning to an in person teaching model.
