Birth Doula. Birth Companion. Birth Coach.  All are various descriptions that are commonly used to describe a doula.   The word doula is a Greek word meaning “woman's servant.” Women have been serving others in childbirth for centuries and have proven that support from women has a positive impact on labor. Find out why a doula is a key person to have in your delivery room.

Birth partners are important in helping labor go smoothly as they can provide both emotional and physical support.   While everyone that probably comes to your house or meets up with you from the time they find out Mama is pregnant until months after the new baby arrives only wants to know how Mama and baby are doing - your role is important.

Often times, women laboring in the hospital spend a good portion of their time in bed.   Not all women know they have options on how they labor.  In may situations, laboring in bed will prolong labor.   Find out how to help ease your labor along.

Tamara Kankowski is now a Childbirth Educator, Dip CBEd!  Tamara has been working for the last year towards her certification in Childbirth Education.   Becoming certified has required a lot of reading in addition to class hours.

The focus of this class is about different techniques to make you comfortable throughout the labor and birth process. You will learn ways to help manage labor pain naturally as well as various labor and birth positions that will help you labor and deliver in a way that is more comfortable for you and baby.

Our Date Night Childbirth Class is a unique class opportunity for those that want to take a Childbirth Class, but don’t have the time to be able to take a full class.  Date night is taught on Friday evenings and includes pizza and dessert to make the night compete.

Stork Helpers is excited to announce that I now offer childbirth classes.   I have been going to childbirth classes across Cincinnati and Dayton for the last year seeing what is currently offered in the area.  I have also been talking to families about what they want out of classes and what they wish they had gotten out of a class.

After 12 weeks of bed rest. A belly that was 64 cm up & down & 55" around. Thirty nine weeks with four tiny feet kicking away waiting to come out. It was 6am when we arrived at the hospital for our scheduled C-section. You would think that I wouldn't be nervous, but I was. I don't know if I was more nervous or it was a different kind of nervous. We couldn't believe in just a few hours we were going to have twins in our arms & our family would grow from 7 to 9.
