"The Birthworks childbirth education class built my confidence and made me excited for birth rather than fearful"

"It was wonderful getting to know the other couples in the class and was a much more authentic, intimate experience than the other childbirth education classes I took during my first pregnancy"








Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Come and join me for a six week class designed to give you confidence as a woman, and as a couple, as you prepare for your baby's birth.

BirthWorks Natural Childbirth Education classes are taught by Lindsey Welch (CCE, BWI).  Lindsey is a mother to three children, one born in hospital in the UK, one born at home in her bedroom in Frederick MD, and the last born at home in the water.  The BirthWorks philosophies resonate loudly with Lindsey's beliefs about birth; that it is instinctual, that all women intrinsically know how to do it, and that given the right tools, every woman can have a positive birth experience.  Lindsey is a certified BirthWorks Childbirth Educator, a certified doula, trained in the UK under the Mindful Doulas program, and a renowned birth and family photographer in and around the Frederick MD area. Lindsey also has a passion for natural birth and breastfeeding photography, honoring the mother through Blessingways and postnatal food trains, and loves all things pregnancy, birth and baby.
