Attend a series of 4 classes that focus on the labor and birth experience. The classes included in the 4 week series are Labor & Birth, Preparing for the Unexpected, Comfort Skills and Medicated Birth Options. This series is most comparable to Lamaze.
When you register for the series, you are registered for ALL 4 classes and will receive just ONE email confirmation for the series, not for each of the individual classes.
All the classes are held from 6:30-8:30 pm on the same weekday night of each week for 4 consecutive weeks -- for example, every Tuesday night for 4 weeks in a row. You must be able to take the classes for the consecutive weeks.
Partners are strongly encouraged to attend all the classes in the series but moms-to-be need a support person to attend Comfort Skills with them. For this class, moms-to-be needs a support person to work with them as both classes are primarily "hands on" practice.
For Comfort Skills Class (#3): Please bring 3 pillows per couple and wear comfortable clothing for sitting on the floor.
