Brooklyn Childbirth Classes

At Carriage House, we have culled our shared birth and postpartum experiences and training to develop a strong, interesting and fun classroom experience. We believe that it is best to fill your perinatal tool bag with as many options as possible, therefore we teach what is most useful and use what we feel are the best elements from the various laboring and healing methods that are out there today. Whether at home, in a hospital, or a birth center, we believe that good outcomes happen when fear is replaced by confidence and understanding of the gestational body and the very normal experience that is pregnancy, childbirth and the early postpartum period.

PMAD'S (Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders) Support Group

A space space for parents to gather and move through the big huge postpartum feels.

PMADS are the most common complication of birth with an average of 1 and 8 parents experiencing symptoms. These feelings and emotions can often be overwhelming, scary, upsetting and at odd with ways we think we should feel. They are also out of your control. Let's connect to share experiences in an open and supportive space and not feel so alone. This group is open to any birthing person who is experiencing or who has experienced Perinatal Mood and Anxiety symptoms. BABIES WELCOME!

Stillbirth and Late Term Loss Group

A safe and protected space to process your feelings

Stillbirth and late term pregnancy loss (20 weeks +) is not something that is talked about and can leave carrying parents (and partners) feeling isolated and alone. The loss of your baby is devastating. It is something we cannot be prepared for and leaves us picking up the pieces of the life we thought it would be. This group has been designed for carrying parents who have had a stillbirth or lost a baby 20+ weeks in pregnancy. Let's come together to create a community that supports each other so we are not so alone in our grief.

Class is facilitated by Marni Low
