Molly Grace, Birth Boot Camp Instructor

I teach Birth Boot Camp childbirth classes to parents who live in or near New Braunfels and San Marcos, TX.
If you can drive to this area, I'd love for you to join a class!

I learned about giving birth from a wonderful childbirth educator while I was pregnant with my first baby and I went on to have four unmedicated, empowering births.

Each of my births was a transforming experience and yours will be too. Seriously.

No matter how you choose to approach it and no matter what happens, you will be challenged and changed by it.

Let’s team up: I’ll help you in learning all the excellent information and essential skills we have to offer in a Birth Boot Camp class, and you make that knowledge your own to prepare your body and mind for a truly amazing birth.

My Birth boot camp classes are evidence-Based, up-to-date, hands-on, thorough,and will prepare both you and your partner to have an amazing birth!

Here's a list of what to expect from these classes! (Buckle up, it's a long list!)

Note: Are you planning to give birth at home or a birth center and wonder if this class is right for you since we talk about hospital-related stuff? Yes, it's right for you. You'll be fully prepared for birth at home or the birth center and I expect you'll have your baby right there, but please be ready for anything. I'd hate for you to feel unprepared at the time you need it most.

My birth classes are held near Centerpoint Mall in San Marcos, which is within easy driving distance for parents in both New Braunfels and San Marcos, and of course surrounding areas as well!

Newborn/Postpartum Care Workshop
Take it with a birth class for a package price!

These classes are offered after each of the 6-week classes listed above as an optional 7th class.

May also be taken without the birth class.

I also occasionally offer a 4 hour Comfort Measures workshop where we simply cover ways for you and your partner to help you through the sensations of labor. This is usually scheduled based on interest, so please contact me to get one set up (this info is also included in the childbirth classes listed above).

To sign up or get more info about a class, please contact me at mollygraceBBCI@gmail.com

If you know you are ready to register for the 6 week class right now, go ahead and fill out the registration form here!

If you are not close enough to me for an in-person class, consider an online Birth Boot Camp class!

Birth Boot Camp is the original online childbirth class that is kept up to date and evidence based! All Birth Boot Camp instructors teach the same curriculum that you'll find in the online videos.

(Why take one in person? Too many reasons to list here, but the biggest one is that it will be more effective because you're more likely to actually do the activities and follow through, plus you get personal support. Feel free to get in touch to figure out the best option for you!)

Click through these links to learn more about each one so you can decide which is the right fit for you!

Online Birth Boot Camp Classes

Bonus option! If you can't take an in-person class with me, but would still like personal support and the ability to have all your questions answered, I offer a hybrid option! If you want to use this option, you will get access to the online classes, but after watching each week's session you will have a video call with me! We can discuss what you learned, make sure everything feels clear, and answer your questions. Contact me at mollygraceBBCI@gmail.com.
