The day you give birth is such an important day for both you and your baby! Preparing for it can positively impact the outcome of your birth experience as well as help eliminate fear of the unknown. During this class, you will learn how your body works during labor, how to prepare for unexpected situations, pain management, relaxation techniques, and also practice different labor positions. If you have a birth partner, they will be trained as your relaxation expert and learn how to assist you through labor. We will also discuss birth plans, what to expect postpartum, newborn care, and breastfeeding. Please bring some pillows, a blanket, and wear comfy clothes - this is a hands-on class!

*Due to the limited class size, registration is required!*
