Natural Childbirth

This class is for expectant parents who are considering and would like to prepare for an unmedicated birth. Medication and epidurals are covered but the class focuses on other comfort measures to use during labor. The class emphasizes actively coping with labor, and includes time to practice and discuss ways of working with your body to manage your labor. The same material covered in the Prepared Childbirth Class is also covered, including a Hospital tour, medication options, medical interventions such as induction and Cesarean delivery, postpartum changes and the newborn.

Registration fee: $185 (For expectant woman and partner/support person)
