Taught by a former OB nurse, this one-time four-hour class gives parents evidence-based information about labor and birth so that you can begin birth plan preparations. We discuss medications offered with risks and benefits, interventions, comfort techniques such as the use of the birth ball and peanut ball, cesarean birth preparation, postpartum and breathing and relaxation labor practice. The class includes follow-up email support from the instructor, a birth relaxation DVD for continued practice at home, a workbook with access to additional videos for home review as well as a continental breakfast and snacks. Bring one pillow.
