This “All in One session” Birth Class is for couples expecting their first baby or parents that need a refresher. This class encompasses all aspects of the anatomy and physiology of birth, coping skills and what to expect.
Since this class is so intensive, we ask no children, please. This particular class is recommended 1-2 months prior to your baby’s due date. This is a non-refundable registration fee (unless true emergency) and will secure your place in the class. All instructional materials and snacks will be provided at your class. This class is open to the community.
