Our standard 4-week childbirth preparation course will help you and your support companion prepare physically, mentally, and emotionally for your labor, birth, and postpartum experience.
We’ll demonstrate and practice a variety of coaching, breathing, and relaxation techniques.
We’ll also cover the birth process, pain management during labor, decision making, and the transition to parenthood.
St. Luke's Center for Community health also offers customized childbirth education for parents with unique needs (high risk, bed rest) or scheduling conflicts.
Refreshers are designed to provide a review of information and/or sibling preparation tips for parents who have taken previous courses.
Interested participants should call St. Luke's Center for Community Health to discuss their needs.
