Childbirth Education – 5 Week Thursday Series
Apr 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT| $80.00
Registration confirmation is required to attend all classes and tours. This is our Great Expectations Childbirth Education Course and hospital tour. This five week childbirth education course meets for five consecutive weeks. This class will help prepare mom and her partner for many aspects of childbirth: for the changes that pregnancy brings, for labor and delivery, and for parenting once your baby is born.
This class is designed to provide you with a great forum to ask lots of questions and to help you make informed decisions about key issues surrounding your baby’s birth. Some of the information you can find out from our birthing class includes:
- How your baby is developing
- Healthy developments in your pregnancy
- Stages of labor
- Warning signs
- Breathing and relaxation techniques
- Comfort measures
- Role of the support person and labor support
- Birth planning
- How to tell when you are in labor
- Pain relief options during labor/medical procedures
- How a birth doula can help
- Cesarean birth and Postpartum
All of our childbirth educators are certified educators and will offer you support and guidance through education in a very unique way that will meet your individual needs.
We believe that childbirth is a process, not a method and we recognize that there is no one right way to give birth.
