Childbirth Education Classes


Pregnancy and birth are physically demanding. Mental preparation and emotional support
can go a long way towards helping you manage the intensity of your upcoming labor and birth.

Ideally, you should take a childbirth class between weeks 20 and 36 of your pregnancy, while 6-8 months pregnant.


               During this series, we will examine and discuss:

  • your ideas, hopes and concerns surrounding birth
  • choosing your medical care provider and birth facility
  • nutrition and exercise during pregnancy
  • typical progression of pregnancy, labor and birth
  • common variances
  • the evidence regarding your birth options
  • comfort measures
  • the benefits of breastfeeding and how to begin
  • the postpartum recovery period
  • preparing for life with a newborn
