Labor and delivery preparation comes in a variety of forms. Many couples continue to choose traditional six-week childbirth classes, while others are taking modified versions of one or two days or online.
This hands-on practice class is intended to provide techniques to pregnant women and their partners that will increase their confidence as the baby's birth approaches. Couples can gain skills that offer greater comfort and an increased sense of control during the birth experience.
