Child Birth Education

A childbirth class is a great way to prepare for labor and birth. While approaches vary, the goal is to provide you with information to minimize your fears and help you make informed decisions.

Most classes will go over:

  • The signs of labor
  • The normal progress of labor and birth
  • Techniques for coping with pain
  • How your partner can help you during labor
  • When to call your doctor or midwife

Childbirth education topics may also include: nutrition, anatomy, exercise, emotional and physical aspects of pregnancy, breathing, relaxation, comfort measures, pain in childbirth, the stages and phases of birth, medications and interventions, cesarean birth, postpartum adjustment, breastfeeding, and newborn care.

Upon completion of a course, you should have a complete understanding of the process of birth and how the options you choose in labor can affect the outcome of your birth experience.
