** THIS CLASS IS FOR DUE DATES BETWEEN 3/15/14 AND 4/15/14 **
This class is required for first-time parents. We recommend starting the class between 28 and 32 weeks of pregnancy (must be completed by 36 weeks). It's a time to learn and discuss a variety of topics including: how to ease late pregnancy discomforts, optimal fetal positioning in both pregnancy and labor, the progress of labor and navigating the "what-ifs" of birth. This class will also spend time reviewing a variety of various relaxation and comfort measures including the importance of breath in labor and positioning. Content will also review what birth at MMC can look like in addition to discussing the importance of the partner at the birth, what they can expect and how to best support a laboring woman through a variety of techniques.
