Topics covered include:

  • Anatomy and physiology of the birth process
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Role of labor support person
  • Pain control theories and options
  • Medications used in labor
  • Epidural
  • Birth options/interventions
  • Labor rehearsal and delivery
  • Cesarean section delivery and recovery
  • Postpartum recovery
  • Detailed hospital tour

Note: This express class includes shortened versions of most of the topics included in our 4-week childbirth series, for a convenient one-day class.

Classes are held in spacious conference room A&B with large plasma screens for educational films and power point presentation. Please bring your own exercise/yoga mat for floor exercises as well as pillow(s) and a blanket. Dress comfortably. You are welcome to bring drinks or snacks with you to class.
