Childbirth Education 

  • Childbirth classes help build your confidence in your body’s ability to give birth.

  • You can discuss your fears about labor and birth with the instructor and other couples with the same concerns.

  • Your partner will learn about childbirth and how to support you on the big day. You may find that attending childbirth classes together will create a special bond.

  • Your instructor will discuss pain relief options, including massage, relaxation, breathing techniques, and medications.

Depending If you are planning a hospital birth, home, or birth center birth you might be interested in taking more than one class. Either way, we will equip you with in-depth information about coping skills, physiology of labor and birth, emotional aspects, and childbirth options.

  • Pre-term babies

  • Status post NICU babies

  • Multiples
