childbirth preparation class is designed to teach pregnant women and their
birth partner skills to use during labor. These skills are helpful to
learn even if an epidural is planned.
included in Comfort Skills Part 1 are breathing techniques, various positions to use
during labor, pushing positions and using birth & peanut balls. This is a hands-on practice so EACH mom-to-be needs a
support person to attend this class with her.
This class is required to attend BEFORE taking Comfort Skills Part 2
Labor & Birth class is required to attend before taking Comfort Skills Part 1 class.
