Childbirth Preparation Class

The childbirth preparation class is a four week course that prepares expectant families for birth. Some topics covered include:

• Last stages of pregnancy and the childbirth process
• Relaxation, breathing, and “coaching” techniques
• Post-partum, breastfeeding, and newborn care

We offer a one day abbreviated class for those who are unable to attend the 4 week series.
