Prepared Childbirth

What to expect during childbirth.

This is either a two part session that meets for 1 to 1 1/2 hours during the week or one 5 hour weekend session. This class teaches you what to expect from the time you arrive at the hospital to when you go home.

You will learn about what is normal vs. not normal in the third trimester, what to pack, when to call the doctor, when to go to the hospital, preterm labor, preeclampsia, pain medication options, relaxation and breathing techniques, vaginal delivery and recovery vs. cesarean section, medical interventions, and go on a hospital tour.
