At New Birth Company, we believe natural childbirth is an awe-inspiring physical, emotional and spiritual experience. Therefore, our main goal through childbirth education is to encourage mothers to trust their bodies and to train well for the natural processes of labor and birth. In this class, we will cover labor signs, stages and phases of labor, comfort measures, positions for labor and birth and so much more. We will emphasize ways to decrease stress, promote relaxation and increase the odds of natural childbirth. It is recommended to complete this class between 32 and 36 weeks. Please wear comfortable clothing. You and your partner will have time to break for lunch. Price for class includes the cost of two people (please only register one participant, one support person is assumed).
- This class is the first in a two part series.
- Please also register for the Childbirth Education Part 2: Beyond Birth class, which provides education on postpartum, newborn care and breastfeeding
