Birth Class

Knowledge Is Power—Ready to dive in? This 6 week series will prepare you to tackle pregnancy, delivery, and the postpartum period with confidence. Whether you are having your baby in or out of the hospital, cared for by midwives or an OB/GYN, if you want to approach your pregnancy, labor, and postpartum with smarts, tools, and a healthy attitude in your back pocket, this class is for you!

  • Learn about pregnancy, stay healthy while carrying your babe, and understand a bit more about how your body works.

  • Develop and practice labor coping strategies as well as healthy expectations for this challenging—but rewarding—hurdle.

  • Birth lasts a day or two—but postpartum is for life! Discover what to expect from your body and your babe in those precious first days after delivery.

  • Develop friendships with other expectant moms and enjoy the benefits of community around birth.
