2017 Preparing for Birth Series - Vestal


This class helps to prepare you for the birth of your baby. We explore the stages of labor and the birthing experience, coping and relaxation skills, and medical interventions such as induction of labor, epidurals, and cesarean birth. Each session includes lecture/discussion, videos, and time for practicing relaxation and coping skills (breathing and more). A tour of our Women’s & Children’s Center and PRIVATE birthing suites is included as a part of this class.

These sessions are 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: $100 per couple - Many insurance companies will reimburse the cost for childbirth education classes. Check with your insurance provider to find out!

Day: Five 2 1/2 hour Wednesday sessions.

Time: 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Please Note: Our instructor will be at home enjoying her newborn baby from May 2017 to August 2017. If you are due in the summer months, please consider signing up for a spring class.
