In a Holiday rush, we have decreased this class to 4 nights and added a half hour each class. In this class you will be taught valuable information to help you through labor, birth and the first few days of having baby at home. Learn about the birth process, hospital procedures, relaxation techniques, medication and intervention options for birth, cesarean birth, newborn care and breastfeeding basics.
Register for classes around your 24th week of pregnancy. This will help insure space availability and that your class to finishes before your due date.
BRING TWO OR THREE PILLOWS AND A BLANKET FOR RELAXATION EXERCISES.
