Preparing Your Mind and Body for Childbirth (La Jolla)

Enroll in a class to learn about labor and delivery and prepare for childbirth.

This four-week course teaches childbirth preparation basics. 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 discussed.


Take this course in conjunction with Getting Ready for Baby, Breastfeeding Your Baby, and Hospital Orientation for Expectant Parents for a comprehensive overview of labor, birth and early parenting.
