Prepared Childbirth

Our childbirth preparation courses will provide you with accurate information as you prepare for labor and birth.  Let our certified childbirth instructors teach you about the labor process, coping and breathing techniques and the latest about epidurals, medication and interventions.  You will also learn about strategies for partners, Cesarean birth and hospital procedures.  Learn how to manage the pain of labor and become empowered with knowledge and skills for birth.  A Birthing Center Tour will NOT be included.  Please register for a Birthing Center Tour separately.

The class costs $85 per couple.
