This class is for families preparing for their child(ren) three years old and over to be present at the birth. Careful preparation is necessary to promote a positive birth experience. Discuss your desire to have your children present with your doctor.
Children to be present at birth are required to take the Brothers and Sisters Class BEFORE taking this class.
For children to be present at birth, they must each have their own support person - someone other than the mother's support person. If more than one child will be present, each child will need to have their own support person to be with that child at all times. Friends and relatives are often good choices. Each child's support person is required to attend the Sibling Attended Birth Class along with the child and parents.
There is a $15 fee for this program. This fee can be prepaid online at the time of registration or on the day of your class by either check or the exact cash amount.
