To prepare you and your coach for a rewarding birth experience, this class covers breathing and relaxation techniques, methods of induction/augmentation of labor, comfort measures, options in labor, Cesarean births, infant characteristics, and options in feeding your child. We answer to the age old question, “when do I come to the hospital?” We also cover in the class how labor begins, what to look for, and when we want to see you in labor & delivery.
The end of the class focuses on common newborn behavior, feeding and sleeping patterns, basic newborn care, and selecting a healthcare provider for your baby. As part of the course, you will receive a 123-page manual which covers the birth process through the first year of life. Please remember to bring two bed-sized pillows to class and to dress comfortably.
This class is recommended for women in their 7-8 month of pregnancy.
These sessions are one day from 9 am to 4 pm in the Blessing Hospital Auditorium. There will be break for lunch, which is not provided.
