Prepare for childbirth by attending a four week class for expectant couples. Learn what happens to the body and the baby during the final phases of pregnancy. Couples will be taught the importance of the birth partner and labor-coping techniques (breathing, relaxation, focusing and positioning) to help deal with labor and facilitate birth. Discover pain management choices. Time will be spent discussing when to go to the hospital, creating a flexible birth plan and what to expect after the baby is born. Classes are taught by a Registered Nurse who is also a Childbirth Educator.
Dates for series: March 5, March 12, March 19 and March 26
Fee: $98.00 per couple
