This six hour, one day childbirth class will give you evidence-based information about giving birth. You will learn about the stages of labor, what’s happening with your body and baby during labor and birth, things you can do prior to labor to help prepare your mind and body, and you will go through a practice labor rehearsal so you are aware of different scenarios in birth. You will receive an email shortly after class with further resources and a list of each of the practice labor scenarios to help you continue to practice as you wish. We will discuss topics from doulas to cesareans (just in case!) to how to prepare for your postpartum time. You will learn how to evaluate information about procedures/interventions you may be offered and will be shown comfort techniques as alternatives to pain medication (as well as being given information on standard pain medications offered in the hospital). Regardless of where you plan to deliver (home, hospital, or birth center) you will be prepared to make informed decisions for you and your family!
