Childbirth Education for the Planned Hospital Birth – April 18th, 2023
April 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$150.00
Taught by a certified childbirth educator and doula, this hybrid course has an (pre-recorded) online component and two live sessions held in person and on Zoom.
The series is designed for those expecting parents seeking a natural childbirth in a hospital setting. It teaches the complete labor birth process, as well as relaxation and breathing techniques, good positions to assume during labor (even with an IV and continuous monitoring), and how to navigate the hospital system. Please wear comfortable “workout” clothes, no dresses or skirts.
You will also learn the skills you need to be confident in caring for your newborn; skills such as swaddling, diapering, bathing, dressing, nail care, comforting a crying baby, safety, and much more!
Part one of the course is online. It is strongly recommended you complete the online portion before attending the live class. Part two is offered on a weekday evening from 6 pm to 9 pm, this covers everything from labor through postpartum. Part three is via Zoom from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm and covers Caring for Your Newborn. The dates shown below reflect the first in-person class which is on a Tuesday and the Zoom class which is on a Thursday evening.
