Childbirth deserves thoughtful and careful preparation. Our classes, based on the Lamaze method of prepared childbirth, are designed to give you the knowledge to make informed decisions regarding your birth experience. We also want to help you to gain confidence in your body's ability to give birth. Our skilled instructors will guide new parents through this joyful experience.

The class times are 4 Wednesday evenings, May 9th, 16th 23rd and 30th from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm.

Topics include the following:

  • Process of labor and delivery - what will happen, how it happens and when it will happen!
  • Role of the labor support person - your coach is an important part of the birth team!
  • Pain management options - how can we help you cope?
  • Breathing and relaxation techniques - tools for everyday to deal with pain or stress!
  • Medications used - Epidural - the how, when and what of epidural pain management.
