Preparing For Birth

Comprehensive Private Child Birth Education
Baby on Board?!

Do you want to have a birth experience you have a say in creating?

Do you feel overwhelmed with all the information there is out there?

Have you had a baby before, and want a different experience this time around?

Planning a VBAC?

Do you already have a million things to do, that don't include doing all the research yourself?

Are you ready for you and your PARTNER to engage this beautiful journey together?

Are you seeking a community grow with as you transition into parenthood?

GUESS WHAT, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

The traditional models of preparing for birth in this country often leave birthing people feeling under-prepared or like cattle being processed through the system
.  
Far too many women wind up feeling overly vulnerable, taken advantage of, and sometimes traumatized by their birth experiences.

With a new insurgence of birth advocacy and options,  the market is being flooded with a ton of books, blogs, & podcasts.

While this is a GOOD THING,  it can be difficult to wade through it all without becoming an expert.

Do you feel like it’s impossible to become an informed consumer without making it a part-time job?

Do YOU KNOW it's time for you to do things differently?

Is it time for YOU to prepare?

It's your time for YOU to have confidence in the choices you make WITHOUT spending hours doing the research


Sounds about right?

Enroll TODAY to take a big step toward parenthood that will leave you excited and ready for WHATEVER birth you are planning.

Dr. Alex Pankoke, DC

I am a wife and mom.

I live my life on mission.

My mission is serve God by serving others.

I am a doctor of chiropractic.

I define health as a dynamic state of balance and optimal function, which is achieved when the body is free of interference and able to adapt to itself and its environment.

I know life is messy and support balance, not perfection.

Loving service is my first technique.
