HBW Logo November 2013Happy Birth Way is expanding!  We now have two new Happy Birth Way Professional Childbirth Educators, and two new members of the Happy Birth Way Doula Group!

Professional childbirth educator Laura Irmis will teach the Happy Birth Way five-class series in St. Pete, and professional childbirth educator Nicole Gillette will offer classes in the Spring Hill area.  Happy Birth Way founder and teacher June Connell will continue to lead classes at Breath of Life Birth Center in Largo.  All Happy Birth Way teachers offer private classes as well.

Students who attend Happy Birth Way classes learn all aspects of labor, including conscious breathing, positions and movement for labor.  Click here to see the details of what’s included in Happy Birth Way classes.

The new Happy Birth Doula Group is a combination of experienced and new doulas, with a focus on training and mentoring to provide the best care for women in labor.  Dr. Jennifer Nedd, a new Florida resident, has a decade of birth doula experience that she combines with her expertise as a chiropractor.  Angela Dunkley is an LPN and a mother of six with a passion for helping women during labor and postpartum.  June Connell, a birth doula since 2010, also shares her knowledge and experience as a childbirth educator and yoga teacher.

Happy Birth Way welcomes all of its new teachers and doulas.  We all look forward to offering outstanding education and support to pregnant and new moms in the Tampa Bay area.
