Wondering where to start now that you've registered for care at Dar a Luz? Here's what we suggest:

Start here:

  1. After you attend your Tour (see below for more information) and you sign up for your care with Dar a Luz, you'll be ready to start taking classes.

  2. Then, sign up for your Pathfinder: Dar a Luz Classes and Services class (see below). In this class you'll find out about all the other classes and have a chance to register for them. You’ll get an overview of what to expect during pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum care at the birth center. You’ll learn how to make the most of your experience at Dar a Luz. You’ll also meet some of the teachers, and other parents-to-be. This class is highly recommended for all Dar a Luz parents. Please take this class before you sign up for your birth class series. You can sign up below.

  3. Sign up for all of your classes! Keep scrolling to find out what classes are required and suggested.

  4. Set up your access to our Client Portal so you can see your lab results, appointments and important information about your care. (You'll receive an email from our receptionist with instructions and your user ID and password.)

Wondering what classes you're required to take?

We require these classes because we truly see a difference in our families' births and experiences when they learn these skills and ideas. Some of these classes are important because learning this general information in a group setting frees up your clinic time to focus on your personal experiences and needs. We know that the education we give to our clients is above and beyond what most parents are offered in their care at other facilities, so we work hard to make sure that our clients find classes relevant, interesting, and fun!


If this is your first baby
Consider taking our Pathfinder: Dar a Luz Classes and Services class to get some guidance (see below).

Families agree to attend all of the following classes (these are included in your birth center service fee):

We also strongly recommend: 

If this is not your first baby
If this is your first baby with Dar a Luz, consider taking our Pathfinder: Dar a Luz Classes and Services class (see below).

Families agree to attend the following classes (these are included in your birth center service fee):

  • Please note, you may be able to bring your other child(ren) to some classes, but not all. Please check with your instructor.

  • Interventions and Hospital Transfers class is required before your baby is born (if you haven't taken it before). This class will increase your confidence about the possibility of transfer to a hospital, and it will make it a more positive experience if it happens.

  • Carseat Clinic is strongly recommended, as laws and seats change constantly.

  • Condensed class class can positively affect your birth experience with reminders, new techniques, and updated research. You are welcome/encouraged to take one of the 5-class series offered instead: either our traditional Dar a Luz Birth Class series, or our Blissborn childbirth series hypnosis class. Processing past experiences and learning new skills can be very valuable for parents. We strongly recommend taking these classes week 28 or later.

  • You are also strongly encouraged to attend the same classes we require for first-time parents. We have some amazing classes!

Newborns Head to Toe

Compared to other mammals, our newborns are born immature and fragile. The first 3 months after birth are often called the fourth trimester, as newborns unfold, "wake up," and start developing into the unique individuals they will be. In this class, learn what makes newborns "tick," how to figure out what your baby needs and understand her/his communication cues. Learn about normal newborn behavior and appearances and what to do if something doesn't seem right. We will focus on the basics like diapering, holding, swaddling (bring your own blanket), and burping.

Most of all, learn how exciting and wonderful your new little family member will be and how to fully enjoy these early days. Required for first-time Dar a Luz parents; recommended for all parents attending Dar a Luz birth classes. Taught by Amity.

Register to take Amity's newborn care class before or after your birth class series. Pick one that fits your schedule and be sure to get it in before the baby is born! Please bring a newborn blanket to work on your swaddling skills.

Babies: Beyond the Basics

When it comes to babies, there is SO much to learn that can't possibly be covered in one class. That sentiment is exactly what this class was born from: feedback from parents on what they would like to learn. In this class we will cover and have time for discussion on :

Introducing first foods
Developmental milestones
Bed sharing vs. sleep training
Attachment parenting
Choosing childcare
Introducing pets to baby
Helping siblings adjust to the new baby
Baby safety and childproofing basics
Building your village and protecting your relationship (thriving, not just surviving, the first year)

Recommended for all parents attending Dar a Luz birth classes.

Take after Newborns if possible; you may also take it before, if needed. Taught by Amity.

NEW: Sex After Baby 

PARENTS and BIRTH WORKERS are invited!

Sexual health is a vital part of the birth process, and it is essential to learn how to honor and integrate it before, during, and especially after pregnancy. During the postpartum phase, birthing people can easily become disconnected from their sexuality due to multiple societal influences on birth and parenthood. Simultaneously, they can be physically uncomfortable or in pain, in ways they weren’t expecting and don’t understand, due to birth injuries and the new daily movements of caring for an infant.

The postpartum time is a unique window where birthing people have the potential to come home to their sexual selves — their inner Eros — in a whole new way. It can be a time of sexual drought and aggravation for new parents or it can be a time of sexual exploration and expansion for them. The time after birth is a very special territory that birthing people and their partners are not often prepared to navigate due to our societal structure around birth. This workshop will introduce you and your partner to a whole new approach to sex after birth!

Birth workers hold an invaluable position that can break the mold of the typical “get your body back” messaging aimed at birthing people. You can replace it with an empowering philosophy for everyone. This workshop will help you to spark crucial conversations with postpartum people that are often glossed over by other providers, in this critical time of growth and transformation. Built on values of intersectionality and body positivity, this class aims to equip you with the knowledge you need as you inspire your clients to fully embody the next phase of their lives.

Babies in lap or carrier welcome.

**This workshop is priced $25-$15 to make it accessible information for you and sustainable work for me. But if you or someone you know is truly interested and can't pay within this range please join us. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Watch for our next one and sign up fast!

Support Groups

Led by licensed mental health counselors, lactation consultants, and Dar a Luz moms and dads, midwives and RN birth assistants, our groups grow and thrive organically. Groups meet on a regular schedule so you can plan ahead.

Telling your story is an important part of moving through it. Come do it in a safe place with caring people. Call us with questions and suggestions!

All of our groups are free and open to the community. No registration is required, but we appreciate it when you RSVP, to help us know how many chairs to set up beforehand!
