Childbirth Preparation Main Content

In this comprehensive series, you and your partner/coach will increase your confidence in the birthing process as you gain a better understanding of what to expect. The series includes information on stages and phases of labor, pain management, cesarean birth, postpartum care and normal newborn characteristics.

Expectant parents are encouraged to register for classes early, as space is limited.

Please note: Some breathing and relaxation is included in this class.. For couples desiring more practice on breathing and relaxation techniques we offer a supplemental one night class called Natural Childbirth Techniques
