Class Description

The Natural Childbirth class is designed to help the couple looking for a more holistic approach to childbirth.

The Natural Childbirth class will cover nutrition and prenatal exercise to help build a good foundation for the mother to stay low-risk and grow a healthy baby. We will then review the labor stages, comfort techniques, including relaxation, massage, birth ball positions and visualizations.

We will be working towards an understanding of the Natural Childbirth method and what your coach can do to help the laboring woman stay comfortable and also help the baby to get into the optimal fetal position for birth. Delivery/pushing positions and breathing will help you and your partner understand your options for birthing your baby.

The Natural Childbirth breathing techniques will be simple, easy to remember and extremely helpful in labor.

We will go over common hospital practices and what to expect from your caregiver and hospital. How to advocate for the things you'd like during this birth.

Other topics in the Natural Childbirth class will include a discussion of drugs and interventions, birth plans, breastfeeding and what to expect during the postpartum period.
