Taught by a certified childbirth educator, this class covers the role of the support person; stages of labor; strategies for managing early labor & working with your team of caregivers; anesthesia and delivery options; and routine postpartum care. A guided hospital tour is also included. Each couple receives a copy of Understanding Birth. This book provides online access to videos, printable charts, checklists and information sheets. The scheduling options are a 2-part weekday series - two consecutive weeks from 6 - 9p or as a 1 day weekend class (either Saturday or Sunday) from 8:30a - 3:30p.
