My name is Paula Pizarro. I have been a nurse for over 25 years, mostly in Labor& Delivery, Newborn, and Neonatal ICU. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing, a Certification in Childbirth Education, and a CCht (which is a certified clinical hypnotherapist). I am also a certified breastfeeding counselor, a certified passenger safety technician, and a certified educator of infant massage. I teach childcare education classes to empower pregnant women, foster and adoptive parents, same-sex couples, and all of their support circle.
I have worked at a large hospital for the past 13 years, the last two of which have been as a Childbirth Educator and Perinatal Outreach Coordinator. I recently opened my own childbirth education business called Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond Inc.
I am invested in the clients that take my classes, and I really love it when a parent comes back to me and tells me how much my classes empowered them to have a great birth, even when things didn’t go as planned. During those time, my clients have been confident in their decision-making because of the medical interventions natural birth options I covered in my class.
At P, B&B, I offer a wide variety of classes and encourage the support circle to be active in them as well. I utilize recommendations from The American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology in my classes as well as evidence-based research from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Some of the classes I am qualified and experienced in teaching are:
- Labor & Birth preparation: 4 sessions
- Labor & Birth Hybrid, Classes online and a 4-hour labor practice
- Breastfeeding class and Consults
- Getting to know your Newborn
- American Heart Association Friends & Family Infant safety & CPR
- Infant massage
- Daddy & Me infant massage and soothing techniques
- Mommy and Me exercise together
- Grandparents and sibling classes
- Post-partum support
- Pregnancy photography and Car seat inspections
I also have a partner that loves teaching like I do and can teach classes for Spanish parents. Together we empower you to have better birth outcomes for a healthier start for your precious baby.
We have a “hands on” approach in all of our classes and we offer smaller group and private classes as well. Check us out and sign up for one or more of our empowering classes today!!
