Childbirth Preparation teaches expectant parents how to reduce stress and increase comfort during labor. The three-week course meets weekly at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas and covers breathing, relaxation, and the role of the labor support person. Anatomy/physiology of the stages of labor, 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.
