February 16 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
This is a ONE day, 7 hour class on a Saturday, which includes a tour of labor and delivery at Seton Medical Center. This class covers a wide range of topics to include:
- Anatomy and physiology.
- Stages of labor, pushing and birth.
- When to arrive at the hospital and what happens next.
- Variations of labor, medical support, including pain management.
- Planned and unplanned Cesarean birth.
- An overview of breathing and relaxation techniques.
- Relaxation narrative (You’ll get a copy to take home).
- Positions to enhance labor will be demonstrated and practiced.
- Postpartum care and support.
My goal as an educator is for you to feel prepared and confident that you’ll birth your baby with the tools and information you’ll gain in class. Knowledge is power, the more knowledge you have, the better prepared you’ll be!
