This one-day class will prepare you for the birth of your baby by exploring the stages of labor/birth, coping and relaxation skills, and medical interventions such as induction of labor, epidurals, and cesarean birth. Time is spent on lecture/discussion, videos, and time for practicing coping and relaxation skills (breathing & more). A tour of our Women's & Children's Center and PRIVATE birthing suites is included with the class. This class is designed for the mother-to-be and her labor support person (we ask that only one person come with the mother-to-be for class).
