Title: Great Starts Childbirth Educator
Great Starts is a program of Parent Trust for Washington Children. Great Starts (previously known as the Childbirth Education Association of Seattle) has offered childbirth and parenting classes in the Seattle area for over 60 years. Our focus is on informed decisions: we educate parents about their options, and encourage them to choose the ones which best meet their personal needs, values, and priorities. Our emphasis is on providing unbiased, research-based information, using interactive and engaging teaching techniques. The outcomes we want for our family participants include: increased confidence, knowledge of labor coping techniques, knowledge of maternity care options and how to make informed decisions, understanding of the needs and capabilities of a newborn, and a stronger connection to other parents and resources in the community.
The Great Starts classes are offered throughout the Puget Sound region, currently as far north as Mountlake Terrace and as far south as Renton with eight individual teaching locations.
