Description

The essential class for all expectant parents who wish to have a positive, empowering and positive birth experience is now offered online! Spread over the course of three session, you will learn what to expect during the labor and delivery process in this virtual, interactive class led by our instructor, Melissa Anne DuBois, RN, BSN, CCE, CLC. This class is easily accessible via computer or smart phone.

The 3-Week Childbirth Education Class provides you with the information you'll need to be an active participant in your maternity care by making informed decisions for you and your baby. Better than any book, this class is taught by a dynamic, engaging, experienced and fun childbirth educator!

 

Learn about:

  • Physiology & stages of labor
  • When to call your doctor & warning signs
  • A "toolbox" of comfort measures and positions for labor & birth
  • Breathing & relaxation techniques
  • Medical interventions, such as labor induction
  • Pain relief options, including nitrous & epidurals
  • Cesarean birth
  • Recovery & postpartum changes
  • Tips for your support person and hands on practice!

Note: At this time, all tours of the maternity unit are suspended until further notice due to COVID-19 visiting restrictions.

A link to the class and instructions on how to participate will be sent to you 48 hours in advance of the class. During the online classes, you be able to interact with other participants and the instructor and ask the instructor questions in real time!  This class is open to all expectant parents, regardless of where you plan to deliver, as most of the information is general to a hospital labor & delivery experience.
