Taught by a certified childbirth educator and doula, this hybrid course has an (pre-recorded) online component and two live sessions held 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 three is the following week 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm and covers Caring for Your Newborn. The dates shown below reflect the first in-person portion. The two in-person classes are held on the same day of the week for two consecutive weeks. It is strongly recommended you complete the online portion before attending the live portion.
