Birth Boot Camp

Congrats on your upcoming birth! My name is Vanessa Stepan and I am a certified Birth Boot Camp Instructor serving the Barksdale Air Force Base community and surrounding Bossier City, LA & Shreveport, LA area.

What is Birth Boot Camp?

If you’re interested in having an amazing birth, you’re in the right place! Birth Boot Camp is a comprehensive 10-week natural childbirth course that will prepare you and your partner to be physically, mentally and emotionally prepared for labor and birth as well as breastfeeding and caring for your new baby. Classes are available in Groups (click here for schedule), Privately (contact me), or Online.

What is the Cost?

{Group Class} $350* A group setting allows for you to connect with other expecting couples close to your due date.

{Private Class} $550* This is the perfect option if you want to customize your schedule and/or have a fast-approaching due date and need an expedited course!

{Online Class} $295 Take the course online at your own pace and have me as your point of contact. (Get $25 off with promo code: BBCI25)

*I offer a 10% discount for Military families (live classes only) and if cost is an issue, I am more than happy to set up a payment plan that works for you.

These fees include:

  • Student Field Manual – a 170 page full color workbook which includes pictures and demonstrations of relaxation techniques, positions for laboring and pushing, “chow charts” to help mom track nutrition, and so much more! Click here for a preview.
  • Breastfeeding: The Ultimate MRE – This download is a complete breastfeeding class by lactation consultant & Birth Boot Camp board member Mellanie Shephard, IBCLC. It covers everything from proper latch, feeding positioning, pumping, milk storage, and more!
  • Additional Resources – Each week, you’ll receive an email with additional resources as well as further information on any other topics that arise in class.
  • BBC Swag – Official Birth Boot Camp tote bag and water bottle as well as other weekly prizes!
  • Online Makeup Classes – Worried you may miss a class? Up to 4 classes can be made up online for free.


A $50 deposit is required to reserve your spot in a live class. This deposit must be submitted (via the USAA app or check) at least 2 weeks before the class start date and the remainder of tuition ($300) is due no later than the start of Class #1 (unless you have requested a payment plan).

To reserve your spot in class, please fill out my Registration Form here.

Interested in having a doula? I offer a special discount for my Birth Boot Camp Students. Learn more here.

If you’ve already had a natural birth or taken a Birth Boot Camp class, I also offer a weekend Reboot Refresher Course for $75 (contact me for more info).

In addition to the natural birth classes, I also provide Maternity, Birth and Newborn Photography packages as well as Doula Services. Discounts on these additional services are available for my Birth Boot Camp students.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me:

  3. Hey,
    I will be coming to Barksdale 5 months pregnant and I am interested in birthing centers. Do you know if there are any in the area or any midwives? This is my third baby and second natural birth so I know exactly what I want and don’t want. Honestly as far from a hospital the better 🙂
    Also I have done the full BBC online course so I’ll be wanting to sign up for the refresher class if you offer that. Hope to hear from you soon.
