Preparing for Labor and Delivery

For the safety of our patients and staff, this class is currently being offered virtually with a live instructor. You can choose to take this class as a 3 week series or as an all-day Saturday course.

Each of our Preparing for Labor & Delivery classes focus on:

  • Labor and delivery of the baby
  • Providing an overview with emphasis on the many variations of normal birth
  • Relaxation and breathing techniques for use during labor 
  • Postpartum information

Taught by experienced nurses, this will cover labor, birth, pain control options, and what to expect in the postpartum period.

Please plan to take the class in your 3rd trimester of pregnancy. It is generally recommended that you choose a class that finishes approximately 3 weeks before your due date, unless you are expecting twins or unless your healthcare provider has advised you otherwise. Each class also includes a tour of the Birth Center. 

This class is offered in a variety of formats to best serve the diverse needs of our families. You may choose to attend virtually with a live instructor or face-to-face. The class is offered as a 3 week series or an all-day Saturday course.
