Understanding Childbirth Express Class

Understanding Birth is a one or two session class that teaches expectant parents about the labor and childbirth process.  

Topics include the stages of labor, comfort measures, support person’s role, medical interventions and Cesarean birth. Our class incorporates Lamaze® techniques and includes 6 hours of instruction.

This class does not discuss pregnancy issues, or newborn / new mother care.  Please visit Baby Care & Safety  and Preparing for Breastfeeding for supplemental information.

During this class, we will practice breathing and relaxation techniques.  Please bring two pillows and a blanket to class so you will be comfortable during our practice sessions. You are welcome to bring snacks and beverages.

You and your support person should attend the class together and plan to complete your birthing class four weeks before your delivery date.

The final session of our Understanding Birth class is held four to eight weeks after your baby is born.  You and your new baby are invited to attend a Beyond Birth class where we will talk about postpartum adjustment, time and priorities as well as parenting myths and realities. Please visit us at Beyond Birth.

Please use Mom's name when registering for all prenatal classes and include the obstetrician's name and due date in the "comments" field during checkout.

Please register early, classes do fill quickly.
