GentleBirth with Janice Miles - Certified Instructor


Congratulations on your upcoming birth! We are going to have fun together! I am excited to be your GentleBirth Instructor. I am a DONA certified birth and postpartum doula and a childbirth educator. I am the owner of Heart Doula Services. I became a GentleBirth instructor because it puts together ALL the elements I wanted to offer in a childbirth class. From brain training, hypnosis and affirmations to physical comfort measures, this program offers everything you need in one curriculum. It’s not focused on having a “XYZ” type of birth. It’s focused on having the best experience possible, even if your plans change unexpectedly. I am committed to providing loving and caring support to all my GentleBirth families throughout their entire birth experience. I believe in the strength and power of women. With strong, positive support and clear, evidence-based information, most births will progress smoothly, happily and normally. I look forward to working together and making your “Birth”-day the best day of your life!

Exciting news!  Last November I became a GentleBirth Certified Instructor. I have been teaching privately but will be offering group childbirth classes beginning this fall! 

The first class will begin on September 10th (Tuesday) and will run for six weeks.  Each week we will explore the birth process, pain management techniques, breathing and more.  Classes will be from 6:30pm-8:30pm in a small group setting for an introductory price of $235.  As a special thank you I will also be including "Baby Arrives, Now What?", a new baby care workshop and a Gena Kirby Rebozo Workshop (I'm a certified instructor).  There are only a few spots left for this session.  Please contact me for more details.
