Childbirth classes are designed to provide the mother and father a comprehensive, informative session covering all aspects of childbirth beginning with the last trimester, covering labor and delivery and newborn childcare. Topics in labor and delivery include the newest evidence-based “Mother-Friendly” care for laboring women including: comfort measures, breathing techniques, analgesia, anesthesia, vaginal delivery, natural child birth, assisted deliveries and cesarean section, skin-to-skin contact at delivery for successful breastfeeding. Group classes are available and are limited to five couples per class. If you have a health challenge that influence your pregnancy and perhaps can alter your plans for birth, we can discuss your special needs after the group class for an additional consultation. The syllabus is then reformatted to meet the unique needs of the private student and their support people and will include how complications or high-risk pregnancy can affect their birth plan.
