Labor and birth require a lot of physical and mental preparation. This class takes you through the stages of labor, providing you with tips and coping techniques to help you each step of the way. You will practice breathing & relaxation techniques, labor positions, and strategies to promote labor progress & minimize discomfort. Your support team will learn the best ways to help you labor with confidence. You will also learn to make informed decisions about pain medication and medical interventions.

Here is what's covered in this one day class:

  • Stages of labor
  • Back labor
  • Breathing/relaxation
  • Pain medication options
