This class 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.
We offer either an all-day class on select Saturdays or a four-part series one night a week. Both cover the same material, so choose whichever one that best fits your schedule.
Registration is required. Please note that if there are less than 5 people enrolled in the class, the class may be cancelled. You will be notified before the class if this occurs. No refunds are given for this class, unless it is cancelled by us or a medical condition prevents you from attending class.
