Designed to meet the unique educational needs of our expectant moms, this highly informative one day class will prepare you for your baby's arrival. The class will cover what every mommy-to-be should know about the last trimester of pregnancy, labor and birth, and postpartum. Topics include:
* Third Trimester Discomforts
* Pre-labor Signs
* Stages of Labor and Birth
* Hospital Practices
* Medications and Medical Interventions
* Postpartum and Newborn Hospital Procedures

We recommend attending classes beginning at 28 - 32 weeks of pregnancy.
All instructors are certified childbirth educators. This class is not affiliated with any specific birthing practice (Lamaze, Bradley Method, Hypnobirthing etc). The class covers what to expect prior,during and after your labor and delivery. This class does not go into detail about comfort measures and relaxation techniques. A separate class (Comfort Measures for Labor and Birth) covers breathing techniques, relaxation methods and comfort measures.
