Childbirth Education Class
Our childbirth class series is an 8 week course covering discomforts in pregnancy, breathing and relaxation techniques for labor and birth, postpartum issues, and infant health and safety. Classes also incorporate elements of "Birthing from Within" and include a brief introduction to the highly effective "Birthing Better with the Pink Kit Method" - an invaluable set of childbirth skills that every couple needs to have before birth.
An overview of hospital procedures includes induction, epidural anesthesia, fetal monitoring and cesarean birth. Both pharmaceutical and non-medical alternatives for pain relief are covered. Discussion on the safety of medical interventions and how to weigh the risks vs. the benefits of all available options. Informed consent is emphasized. Breastfeeding information is provided. Students are welcome to check books out of my lending library and to request information from my database.
