Putting it all together: how to get the birth you want

(Formerly - Preparing for Labor and Birth:  Maximizing Your Ideal Birthing Experience)

​This is NOT a childbirth education class!  It will not teach you what to do at the different stages of labor, what medical interventions can occur, etc.  This class was created to help families meet their birthing goals.  

​A 2 1/2 - 3 hour, interactive class for expectant mothers and their labor support partner(s) that explores the following topics:

  • Healthcare and birth location compatibility
  • Effective communication skills
  • Preparing an effective birth plan
  • Assembling your birth bag
  • Informed decision making     
  • What you and your partner can do during each stage of labor 
  • Utilizing your five senses to create a "nest", regardless of birth location                                                                                 

Overall goal:  Take the skills and information learned to MAXIMIZE ​your chances of achieving the labor and delivery you desire!  

Class fee: $40
