This childbirth preparation class is designed to teach pregnant women and their birth partner skills to use during labor. Topics include breathing techniques, body positions, pushing positions, relaxation methods, birth ball and various comfort techniques. These skills are helpful to learn even if an epidural is planned. Please bring 2 pillows with you to class for comfort practicing positions. Each mom-to-be needs a support person to attend this class with her.
