Childbirth Ed for the Queer Family by Michele Arrieta

  • City Births - UWS 306 West 106th Street New York, NY, 10025 United States (map)

City Births is proud to offer a childbirth education course for queer families. The birth preparation material covered is the same as our traditional Childbirth Education course, but in an LGBTQ-centered space. This gives a special opportunity to celebrate our queer diversity and speak to specific challenges we may face. Our intention is for you to leave feeling confident in your choices for childbirth and connected to a wider community. 

This class is welcome to all people on (or not on) the gender spectrum, single-parent families, expecting couples, and multiple-parent families. The instructor for this series is Michele Arrieta, a cisgender, queer, white woman and co-founder of For Your Birth. She has a daughter through adoption and for whom she induced lactation. Michele's been working in NYC as a doula, a childbirth educator and a breastfeeding counselor since 2014.

*** Everyone regardless of how you identify are welcome in ANY of our classes
