We can help you feel more confident about having a positive birth experience. Childbirth classes help you build trust in your body’s ability to give birth. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss any concerns about labor and birth with the instructor and other expectant couples. Your partner will learn how to support you on the big day – and attending together will create a special bond.
Learn about what matters most:
- Am I in labor? What will it really be like?
- Relaxation and breathing techniques
- Comfort measures and pain relief options
- Empowering partners to provide support
- Cesarean birth basics
- Early postpartum self-care
Our classes offer interactive learning, hands on practice with techniques and realistic videos.
