Event Details

This comprehensive six-class series will help you feel informed, prepared, and ready for the birth of your baby with a natural approach. A wide array of physical and emotional comfort measures are covered, with plenty of practice time. You’ll receive information about medical options and procedures, including pain medications and cesarean birth, as well as how to write a birth plan. Tips and techniques for partner support are emphasized. One class includes a section on breastfeeding which is taught by a certified lactation consultant. There is also a visit by a pediatrician for a presentation about newborns. Classes are small and personal, chocked full of information but with plenty of time for questions and discussion. And they're fun!

Plan to finish the series 2-4 weeks before your due date. Classes are held weekly from 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM for six weeks. Cost for all six classes is $140 per couple.

Dates for this series are:July 25, August 1, August 8, August 15, August 22, and August 29.
