“We are the new model of childbirth education for the 21st century.”
A Trusted Independent Resource
We are a trusted independent resource for pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and early parenting in the Pittsburgh, PA area.
We also teach Prenatal Yoga, Mommy & Me Yoga, and other Yoga workshops. Because we believe that continuity of service is a valuable tool to support our students throughout their entire pregnancy; we offer classes, workshops and community groups beginning with pre-pregnancy and extending through the postpartum period and into early parenting.
Our Classes and Workshops
Our classes are appropriate for those giving birth at home, at a birth center or in a hospital. Through our Confident Birthing childbirth classes, and our other services, Shining Light Prenatal Education gives our students the tools they need to make informed choices regarding their births and their babies. We understand there is no one “right” way to give birth; we honor and respect the choices our families make. We offer both group classes and Concierge-style Private Childbirth Classes at our Center or in your home.
Our mission is to educate and empower women and their families so that they may have the birth they are intended to have. We believe birth is a natural, normal process which is truly a transformational point in a woman’s life.

“I feel really good about how I managed the first 13 hours of my labor and want to thank you for everything these past 25 weeks or so. The positions and breathing techniques that we did in class really made a difference for me. I learned that it is really important to acknowledge and accept that your birth plan may not go as planned. Mine didn’t, but I don’t have any regrets and we now have this amazing, healthy little girl.”
