Description

This abbreviated course introduces the birthing person and their support person(s) to labor, birth, and current evidenced based practices surrounding them. Get introduced to your Community Hospital’s Family Birth Center, explore the facilities, meet the care team. These small-size classes are taught by a Lamaze-trained labor and delivery nurse. Each session focuses on providing information most useful for different stages of pregnancy, offering you knowledge and confidence during this special time.

Week 1 covers:

  • Discover the many services offered at the Family Birth Center, and the
    persons caring for you (OBH, OB, RN, LES, Director)
  • Examine sources of labor/birth information, identifying evidence-based
    material
  • Understand your role in making informed choices about your and your baby’s care
  • Explore strategies for preparing your body and mind for birth
  • Tour the Family Birth Center and Community Hospital facilities

Week 2 covers:

  • An overview of how labor unfolds, from the weeks leading into birth up to the moment you meet your child
  • Explore coping methods for each stage of labor, to use at home and the birth center
  • Consider the most common “What If’s” of labor and birth
  • Explore the birthing suites, discover how they can best support your ideal birth

We encourage you to consider:
