Everything you need to know to approach labor and delivery with confidence

Your Questions Answered

Knowledge is power. This three-week course will give you the knowledge you want to approach labor with confidence. It will help you learn how to partner with your physician or midwife so that, together, you can make the choices that are right for you and your baby.

  • What happens if labor doesn’t go as planned. 
  • Available interventions. 
  • Medications and anesthesia. 
  • Cesarean birth. 
  • The immediate newborn and early postpartum period.  

You’ll be introduced to relaxation, breathing, positioning and pushing techniques. And you’ll have time to get your questions answered 

This class includes a tour of the Bain Birthing Center.
