This class is designed for people who have been told by their doctor that they will be giving birth by cesarean section. The class includes the indications for cesarean section, coming to the hospital, your partner's role in the operating room, a brief explanation of the surgery, newborn procedures, and what to expect during the postpartum and recovery period. Each couple will receive a copy of "The Essential C-Section Guide" by Maureen Connolly and Dana Sullivan. Prentice tour is included. If you are unable to attend your class, please call at least 48 hours in advance to reschedule or to receive a class refund. This will allow your seat to be made available to another participant.
