Our comprehensive childbirth preparation class is taught by experienced labor and delivery nurses to help you prepare for your birthing experience. The class has been adapted to a fully-virtual format. The program covers the latest evidence-based information to help you prepare for pregnancy, delivery, and the postpartum period. Through our multi-dimensional class format, including lecture, discussion, video, and Q&A, our top goal is to boost your confidence and reduce your anxiety as you prepare for labor and delivery. We’ll share relaxation and breathing techniques to help you practice from home through delivery while supporting your emotional journey through labor. We welcome your questions and want to assist you as you prepare for your baby’s birth day! This class is suited for all moms, but the extended format is especially helpful for first time moms or moms who are planning for an unmedicated labor. Choose the program that works best for you.
