Our comprehensive, traditional Lamaze-based childbirth classes are designed to give you knowledge and confidence during your childbirth journey. They provide current, evidence-based information that will help you learn skills and relaxation techniques to cope during labor and delivery, and lead towards a safe and healthy birth. Our goal is to help you feel confident, supported, and trust in your body’s inherent ability to give birth.
The classes will cover the end of pregnancy, all aspects of labor, vaginal and cesarean birth, postpartum recovery, and will touch on parenting and newborn care. They will prepare you for what to expect during your stay in the Family Birth Center. These small group classes, for you and your support person, are ideal for when you are entering your third trimester. Childbirth classes are offered as either a four-consecutive week evening class or a two-day weekend class. A tour of our beautiful Family Birth Center is included with the childbirth classes for your convenience.
Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended for active participation.
Please bring your birthing ball and a couple of pillows.
