You have already completed Labor & Birth and Comfort Skills
, and are much closer to being prepared for your baby's birth. Included will be a discussion on pain and coping techniques, and epidurals.
This class is your opportunity to have a practice rehearsal with your partner before your actual labor & birth. There will be a lengthened opportunity to practice breathing skills, positioning, and comfort techniques during a mock labor scenario. Each mom-to-be needs a support person to attend this class with her.
Bring a bag of items you plan to use during labor (massage tools, Chap Stick, tennis balls, foam noodle, your focusing object, washcloth, etc.). Please bring 2 to 3 pillows per couple and wear comfortable clothing for sitting on the floor.
