Event description

Description

This one time class is required for families who are having their second to fifth child and are planning their first out-of-hospital birth, or for families transferring care to us and have taken a hospital based class series or a class series outside of MMC. This class is recommended but not required for families whose last birth has been over a year at MMC. This will be a time to review the progression of labor, what birth at MMC is like; what is normal birth for MMC and what falls outside of normal and how it is supported. This is also a time for couples to practice comfort measures and coping techniques for labor in the birth rooms. Content is also directed at partners regarding how to support mom during the early labor phase at home, what to look for while laboring at home, and when to be calling the midwives. We ask you to take it before 36 weeks of pregnancy. A recent participant said, "We really found this refresher class to be useful information. We came in feeling like it was just a requirement but came away with new information and questions answered that we didn't even know we had! Thanks!" *3 couples must be registered in order for the class to meet. Please arrange childcare for your current child(ren).

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR - Joy Konkle, LPC, CLD, ICCE

I have long been passionate about birth and after the birth of my first daughter, I combined my background in education with my desire to support families in their own birth and parenting journeys. In 2009, I became a certified labor doula and followed that with a certification in childbirth education. I have taught childbirth and baby care classes for the past 6 years and love teaching and working with families during this precious time in their lives. I live in Littleton with my husband and four beautiful children.
