Event description

Description

*By signing up for this event, you are signing up for a class on January 7, 14, 21, and 28. Each class will be from 2 p.m. - 5 p.m. Only one ticket is needed per couple.

This FREE four-session childbirth course offers all the essentials to prepare you for labor, childbirth and breastfeeding. Topics include:

  • Class 1: This first class focuses on understanding what's involved with labor and birth, discussing everything from what labor feels like, how to time contractions, how to know when you're really in labor and knowing when to leave for the hospital.
  • Class 2: For our second class, we'll head up to The Baby Place unit and spend time in one of our labor and delivery rooms, there we'll talk about exactly what's involved if you have an epidural or any other pain medications in labor. We'll also discuss information on what to expect during pushing and delivery of the baby. Afterwards we'll spend time reviewing medical procedures and interventions in childbirth, including inductions and cesarean birth. A tour of the unit will be included in this class.
  • Class 3: Our third class is all about comfort measures in labor. This class we'll discuss how to offer support to the laboring woman, best positions to labor in, and hands-on comfort measures for labor and birth. We'll also teach about vocalizing and breath awareness techniques for coping with labor contractions. We'll finish the class with a discussion on postpartum care and recovery.
  • Class 4: Class four will focus on breastfeeding education, including proper latch and positioning. The class will conclude with tips for comforting and caring for your newborn. Only class four may be taken separately.

A tour of The Baby Place will be offered before the January 7 class. Plan on attending all sessions of the class. Light refreshments are provided. Registration includes all four sessions, and is FREE.
