Childbirth Education Class

The childbirth education class is offered in two different formats: a one day marathon class on a weekend (from 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) or a three-part "Natural Childbirth Options" series on a weekday evening (three classes from 6 to 9 p.m.).

One Day Class Overview

The one day marathon class covers the following topics: what to expect during labor and delivery, birthing options, admission to the hospital, epidurals and pain management, vaginal and C-Section births, common interventions and scenarios, and much more.  A tour of the maternity unit is also provided as part of this class.

Natural Childbirth Options Overview

The "Natural Childbirth Options" three-part series is specially designed for midwife patients or those who desire a more natural delivery experience. Emphasis will be placed on managing early labor at home, practicing natural comfort measure techniques through tools such as muscular relaxation, massage, rhythm and rituals and utilizing essentials oils. It also addresses ways to keep labor progressing, common medical procedures, and specific examples of how the support partner can connect with the laboring mom.  A tour of the maternity unit is also provided as part of this class, during class three. 

What to bring to class

Please bring a pillow and an exercise ball if you have one (if taking the three-part series, only bring ball to class #2). Minimal snacks are provided, so you may wish to bring your own additional snacks. There is also a 45-minute break for lunch on your own (during one-day marathon sessions only). 

What Isn't Included

Please note that newborn care and breastfeeding are not included in this class. Participants are highly encouraged to sign up for our Breastfeeding and Baby Care and Infant CPR classes.
