Prepared Childbirth Classes
Prepared Childbirth Classes teach relaxation techniques, controlled breathing, physical and emotional changes that occur during labor and birth. Pain control options including unmedicated, medicated and epidural will be discussed. Class discussions of inductions and cesareans are also included. Both mother and her support person learn how to take an active part in the birth process. This class will also cover Infant Care.
You may choose between a two-week-evening series of evening classes or an all-day Saturday class for your convenience. The final class in each evening session will cover Infant Care. Infant Care is also available as an individual class for those not wishing to enroll in the full evening series.
A tour is included in the class.
Recommended time to enroll: around the 28th – 30th week of pregnancy for those enrolling in evening classes and the Saturday class option.
