Rachelle Oseran


Welcome to my website. My name is Rachelle Oseran and I teach Lamaze childbirth preparation classes in English in Jerusalem, Israel. I am an independent childbirth educator, offering unbiased information about all your choices in childbirth, allowing you to make fully informed and empowering decisions that suit your individual needs.

These birthing classes go beyond the stages of labor and what you read in books. You will learn the most up-to-date
, evidence-based information about all aspects of labor and birth. You will learn about what birth is like in the location you have chosen. The classes will help you understand what happens during physiological birth. You and your partner will learn positions and techniques that will aid labor and help you cope with the contractions. Your partner will gain confidence in his/her ability to help keep you comfortable in labor and his/her encouragement and physical and emotional support will help you to work with your body. The classes will also cover variations of labor and birth, breastfeeding, postpartum and parenting realities.

Each birth is unique and each couple has its own idea of safety and security. These classes will help you build confidence to make informed choices about medical procedures, pain relief and alternatives during birth. The discussions, materials, hands-on practice and up-to-date information facilitate safe and satisfying birth experiences.

Our small group size allows for individual attention and time to discuss topics of concern in a warm, relaxed atmosphere. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet other expectant parents, form friendships and bonds and be supported during the most exciting transition of your life. I am always available to my couples for any question or concern relating to the pregnancy or birth.

Childbirth can be a deeply satisfying experience when you make informed choices about your body and your baby's birth. Developing confidence in your intuition will be your best guide for birthing and parenting your newborn baby.
