  • Preparing for Childbirth (3 week series)

    Our traditional Preparing for Childbirth class covers everything you need to know to prepare for childbirth, including:

    • The final weeks of pregnancy.
    • The birth process, including the different stages and phases of labor
    • Back labor
    • Labor and birth coping skills (including breathing and relaxation, and labor positions) with hands-on practice time during class
    • Medications for comfort
    • Inductions and medical interventions
    • Cesarean birth
    • Postpartum recovery and the adjustment to parenthood
  • Preparing for Childbirth Fundamentals (1 - 4 hour session)

    If you’re just looking for the basics, or prefer attending a shorter weekend class, you can take our Preparing for Childbirth Fundamentals. This condensed class covers similar topics as our 3 week series, with the exception of in-depth conversations of labor variations and hands-on practice of labor and birth coping skills. Families are encouraged to practice comfort strategies on their own, or take our Labor Skills Workshop for guided hands-on practice.
