Preparing for Birth in a Day

This one-day class will prepare you for the birth of your baby by exploring the stages of labor, coping and relaxation skills, and medical interventions such as induction of labor, epidurals, and cesarean birth. Time is spent on lecture/discussion, videos, and time for practicing coping and relaxation skills (breathing & more). A tour of our Women's & Children's Center and PRIVATE birthing suites is included as a part of this class. This class is designed for the mother-to-be and her labor support person (we ask that only one person come with the mother-to-be for class).

Bring two pillows and wear comfortable clothing.

Cost: $55 per couple

Day: One 7 hour Sunday session

Time: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
