Understanding Labor and Birth (first 4 weeks)

Understand the basics of birth physiology; hormones and how they work together to start and continue labor, how to work with the pelvis and uterus as they change and move, and how thoughts and emotions may play a roll in how childbirth unfolds.  Learn what to expect where you have chosen to give birth, routine procedures, as well as discovering how to make the best decisions for you and your baby.

Week 1:  Understanding Labor & Birth – Nuts and Bolts, and how it works

Week 2: Informed Choices – Making the best decisions for you
