Practicing Labor Skills is taught by a certified childbirth instructor who will teach you how to use positioning, relaxation, breathing and distraction techniques. We encourage your partner or labor support person to attend this class with you. This class is designed for those who have taken an Online Prepared Childbirth class or Childbirth Express class and want extra practice to help facilitate an unmediated labor. It may also be helpful to refresh your skills from a previous birth.
The class cost is $35 per couple.
Class meets for two and a half hours. Please bring two pillows, a blanket and you may also bring a snack and/or drink to class.
In the event of bad weather (such as a snowstorm), an email will be sent out notifying you regarding class cancelation or you can call The Lactation and Education Center voicemail at 303-812-4640 one hour prior to the start of your class.
If you cancel or change your registration prior to five business days before class begins, your registration fee will be refunded or transferred to another class. No refunds or transfers will be given after this time. If you miss your scheduled class, we are unable to refund or transfer funds.
We regret that in rare instances, classes may be canceled if we do not reach a minimum number of registrations. A full refund will be given if we must cancel your class.
Please note that email and phone inquiries will only be answered during our office hours, Monday thru Friday from 9am to 4pm.
