Preparation for Childbirth

Our childbirth preparation courses will provide you with accurate information as you prepare for labor and birth. Let our nationally certified childbirth instructors teach you about the labor process, coping and breathing techniques and the latest about epidurals, medications and interventions. You will also learn about strategies for partners, cesarean birth and hospital procedures. Learn how to manage the pain of labor and become empowered with knowledge and skills for birth. We suggest pairing this class with a Labor Lab session.

The class fee is $75 per couple.

Class Reviews:

I really thought the info was helpful, unbiased, informative and thorough. The info on the stages of labor, postnatal care, induced labor and c-section were great. I liked the labor positions too. Good balance of lecture and hands on!
