This course teaches childbirth preparation basics. This three week course meets consecutively for three hours each week. Couples learn effective ways to reduce stress and increase comfort during labor. Topics include breathing, relaxation and the role of the labor support person. Medications, hospital procedures and cesarean birth are also presented.


Take this course in conjunction with Getting Ready for Baby, Breastfeeding Your Baby and Hospital Orientation for a comprehensive overview of labor, birth and early parenting. Wear comfortable clothing and bring two pillows, a blanket and a snack. There is a $10 cancellation fee.


All sessions run the same day of the week for two consecutive weeks, from 1 pm to 6 pm. Several sessions of this two-part class are available.
