Childbirth is often associated with feelings of fear and anxiety, but if we trust our bodies and gain a deeper understanding of physiologic birth, we can begin to see childbirth as a beautiful, intimate and very natural experience.
During this one-day workshop, expectant parents will journey through the various stages of labor, learn about fetal positioning and its affect on labor progress, practice hands-on relaxation techniques to decrease discomfort and learn essentials of postpartum care. Participants will also gain a better understanding of common medical procedures including induction/augmentation of labor and epidural anesthesia.
After taking this class, you will feel more confident, empowered and prepared for the birth you desire. The class is held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (with a one-hour lunch break). This class is dedicated exclusively to childbirth so we recommend that you also sign-up for the Baby Basics Class.
