Taught by our registered nurses, this hybrid course has an online component as well as an in-person 2-hour class is for all expectant parents who have completed the childbirth full series with a previous pregnancy. Brush up on the physiology of birth and relaxation techniques.
The online component includes a review of the stages of labor and how mom may feel during each stage. Time is spent in-person class processing past birth experiences and accepting that each birth is different and unique. There will also be a labor rehearsal where you and your partner will practice relaxation, deep breathing, and supportive positioning in the birth rooms. You can become familiar with the tub, the stools, and the birth balls with a review on how each can help you cope with labor.
The in-person portion is offered once every other month, on a Wednesday or Thursday evening from 6 to 8 pm.
