Childbirth Preparation Classes
Classes are offered in a 5-week series or 2-day weekend series.
Learn about the birth process in a comfortable, nurturing environment.
This series will cover:
- Signs and symptoms of labor
- What to expect at the hospital
- Laboring positions and stages of labor
- Relaxation and breathing techniques
- The birth partner’s role—techniques on how to support a laboring woman
We recommend couples begin this series between 28 and 30 weeks.
Sibling Preparation Class
The arrival of a new baby can bring many changes to a family and this can pose challenges for older siblings. This class will help prepare soon-to-be brothers and sisters for the arrival of the new baby. This class is for children ages 3 to 8. At least one parent is required to attend.
