This one day virtual course with follow up Q & A Session is essential
for all first-time expectant parents, as it will help to prepare you and
your partner for labor and delivery. Students receive an “Understanding
Birth” guidebook which explores the topics of the signs of labor,
when to go to the hospital, breathing techniques, relaxation and massage,
common medical procedures, including explanations of epidurals and cesarean
birth, the role of the labor support person, and insight into the hospital
and postpartum experience for both mother and baby. Additionally, you
will be given access to an Mobile App that will keep all of this information
at your fingertips as you prepare for and experience the birth of your baby.
You must register online to secure your spot in class. After which, we
will email you an invitation to a WebEx meeting for the class date and time.
