This is our most popular and comprehensive class, ideal for first time parents or parents seeking a more in depth refresher.  With a focus on physical comfort during labor and birth, couples will learn hands on techniques and positions for coping with pain during labor at home or at the hospital. We will also cover communication between partners, how to identify and communicate birth preferences, medical pain relief options, using a birthing ball, the process and stages of labor, what to expect, the postpartum period, feeding, bonding, preparing siblings for change, and more! We are intentional about maintaining smaller class sizes so you leave feeling prepared for the big day.
