Sign up for Joyful Birth classes

Class in sessionJoyful Birth classes include 10 class sessions over 9 weeks. The first eight sessions are held weekly from 6:00-8:30 pm, with a final double-session class on a Saturday afternoon with a 30-minute break between sessions. Learn more about what is included in classes and read frequently asked questions on the About The Classes page.


I am currently offering the Joyful Birth 9-week series at Wellness By Danielle, 590 Preemption St., Geneva as well as at Seven Springs Midwifery, 2425 Clover St., Rochester, NY (Brighton). Next Brighton start date TBA soon.

PLEASE NOTE that I currently require all students (and myself) to be masked while inside the class venue, regardless of vaccination status. If COVID-19 transmission rates make in-person classes unwise, we will switch over to Zoom classes. If I am running an in-person class but you would prefer to attend virtually, please let me know. We can tie you in via Zoom.

  • Mondays, September 20 – November 8, 2021 and final double session Saturday November 13, 2021, 1:00 – 5:30 pm. Please note that there was an error in the original listing for this class. It runs through November 8, not November 1.

If a series has already begun but you would like to join, please contact me. I can accept new students into a series through Class 3.
