Childbirth Prep Series Begins
March 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This class helps families prepare for labor, birth and early parenting. A tour of the Family Birth Center and a class reunion celebration after everyone has had their babies are included in the program. Try to complete the class about a month before your due date – or a month earlier than that if you are experiencing problems or are “high-risk” with the pregnancy.
Class size is limited to 12 couples.
Topics covered include:
- The process of labor and birth
- Comfort measures (including relaxation and breathing techniques)
- Birth options, medication and anesthesia
- Newborn characteristics
- Postpartum care and family adjustment
Time: 6 – 8 p.m.
Length: Four weeks; one class per week
