water birthWhile this class is designed for expectant parents looking to learn more about water birth, it is requested that students have a prior discussion with their care provider about having a water birth to assess eligibility. UnityPoint Health – Meriter educators discuss the benefits of water birth, requirements, safety strategies, comfort measures, and ways your support person can assist you during labor.  While you will view several water births during the course of the evening, this 1.5 hour class is specific to water birth and does not take the place of other Childbirth Education programming.
