Online Birthing Classes
Hi! My name is Lindsey and I have been successfully teaching face-to-face childbirth classes in Tallahassee since 2010. I also have been a birth doula since 2007. To top it off I have three kids that were born in a birth center, home, and a hospital… in that order!
(Lindsey and her kiddos, Fall 2018)
I began teaching online birthing classes in order to reach parents that can’t make it to an in-person class so that they may too have an amazing transition to parenthood.
Lindsey‘s online birthing classes go beyond what typical childbirth classes offer. In addition to learning practical, evidence based information, parents deepen their intuitive knowing through thought-provoking dialogues, memorable birth videos, and fun hands-on exercises.
Also, Lindsey spends considerable time teaching pain coping practices which are helpful for any type of birth, but especially for those considering or planning for an unmedicated childbirth.
“If you don’t know your options, you don’t have any.”
Many new parents believe that childbirth education isn’t necessary because our bodies were designed to give birth and therefore knows exactly what to do. It is true that our body intuitively knows how to have a baby, but there are additional skills and knowledge needed to successfully navigate having a baby in our birthing culture.
Lindsey’s online childbirth classes are perfect for parents wanting to explore their options during pregnancy, and learn how to advocate for themselves throughout childbirth.
Your online birthing classes will prepare you to birth-in-awareness whether you are birthing at home, in a birth center, tipi, taxi, or hospital.
Online Birthing Class Information
As a childbirth educator Lindsey does not not lecture, fill heads with facts and figures, or teach parents how to breathe. Her role is to gently guide you into an understanding of your own expectations, assumptions, strengths, and bring you to the point of being ready to birth in awareness.
Your birthing classes will be:
- a balance of practical, useful information and creative, experiential exercises
- personalized to your needs and interests
- not narrowly focused on a particular type of birth
- stimulating, lively discussions and interesting exercises
- learning, not just about birth, but also about yourselves
In your childbirth class, you will learn how to:
- Build a pain-coping mindset
- Navigate the stages of labor with confidence
- Increase confidence in yourself and your partner
- Ask questions and make decisions in labor
- Create a birth space that encourages labor progress
- Address your birth fears
- Push your baby out
- Welcome your baby
- Recover and plan postpartum
- Care for your newborn
- Continue to do the “next best thing” during a Cesarean birth, while using pain medication, or with medical support
LIVE Online Birthing Classes
My online birthing classes are live and not pre-recorded. What this means is that during class hours you will have access to ME!
- Classes are held on weeknights for two hours, six weeks in a row for a total of 12 classroom hours.
- Our online childbirth class will meet on Zoom. Zoom can be accessed on a home computer, tablet, or cellphone.
- The live online birthing classes will be recorded, so if for some reason you miss a portion of class you will be able to replay it at your convenience.
Classes will be kept small, around 6 mamas/couples. In each class you will have the opportunity to connect with the other expecting parents.
It is an amazing feeling to be doing this with other people in the same situation. When taking my online birthing classes you will not feel alone!

Here are a handful of testimonials from other mamas who have taken my childbirth classes.
I am so happy to have participated in Lindsey’s classes while pregnant with my daughter. Lindsey is a great facilitator of discussion and activities, and at the end of the classes I felt not only prepared to go through the birthing experience (and, it turns out I was ) but also welcomed into a community of mothering.
“Lindsey’s childbirth class was an excellent balance of the technical knowledge my husband (and first time dad) required and the holistic experience I was seeking to prepare for my first hospital birth (following a homebirth twelve years ago). She did a stellar job of teaching pain management skills, labor support techniques, and helping us navigate the challenges of birth together. When we were faced with an unexpected induction decision, my husband and I used the tools we learned in Lindsey’s class to make the right choice for our family. I highly recommend her class to all expectant parents, both new and experienced!”
I am really grateful to Lindsey for sharing her knowledge with my husband and I. I delivered by C-section with my first child and wanted to try VBAC with my second. Lindsey supported our decision which gave us confidence to ask the right questions of the doctors and nurses at the hospital. Thanks so much Lindsey for all you…your birthing class was so helpful to us.
It’s hard to put into words how thankful I am to God for leading me to Lindsey and mother rising. One of my friends from my breastfeeding group had used her classes and highly recommend them because the pain coping she learned from her she actually remembered and used! I can honestly say I used every pain coping skill taught. I am so grateful for how the classes taught my husband how to read my cues! I know he was more prepared because of what we learned and he was such an amazing help to me. I did not end up with the birth I had dreamed of but I am so thankful that even though the classes were focused on natural birth that Lindsey took time out to show us how to cope with a c-section delivery. Man did I need it and it helped me greatly during and after with my rough recovery. Because of Lindsey’s guidance I made a very specific birth plan section in case of a cesarean and they followed it to a tee! They brought my baby too me in the recovery room instead of me having to wait hours! I feel so blessed to have learned all that I did and I know that I owe a lot of how well it went to these classes! I highly recommend them and they are worth every penny! Thank you Lindsey!
“Lindsey’s childbirth classes helped me so much to prepare for our baby girl’s birth! She helped by answering so many unknowns and by helping me to paint a picture of how I hoped the birth would go…I was connected to Todd and present. I felt prepared to feel the pain and breathe through it. I had an awesome birth experience and thank Lindsey for assisting in that!”
“I really enjoyed Lindsey’s course – so much, that I took it twice: once alone and once with my husband. The dynamics of the course changed to suit the group and it was an intimate and engaging experience. When taking the course alone, I still felt fully included in each activity. When I took the course with my husband, I felt that it helped us build the sort of trust and bonding necessary for a well-supported childbirth. I ultimately did not have the birth experience I longed for and had prepared for due to health complications. Nevertheless, the skills I learned in Lindsey’s class and the information she shared helped me cope tremendously well. As a result, I was well prepared for the surprise ending to my pregnancy and was still able to have a positive birth experience.”
