This is a five week course providing information about all aspects of childbirth. This class prepares women and their birth partner for the normal childbirth process and minimizes the need for medical intervention. Topics include: Third trimester pregnancy changes, the birth process, labor, delivery, laboor support, variations on labor, and going home. We teach all options for childbirth using exercise, body awareness, Lamaze breathing and relaxation techniques. Couples learn what to expect during each phase of childbirth, and how to work together. A tour of the Birthplace is included in this class.
This class is held in the Faxon 1 Conference Room on level B.
