Understanding Labor, Birth, and Breastfeeding (Part 1 & 2)
Two half-day classes
Together, these two childbirth preparation classes cover the first four weeks of our 7-week series. Understand the basics of birth physiology; hormones and how they work together to start and continue labor, how the pelvis and uterus change and move, and how thoughts and emotions may play a roll in how birth unfolds. Learn what to expect where you have decided to give birth, routine procedures, as well as exploring how to make the best decisions for you and your baby.
Part 1: Labor physiology, nuts and bolts of childbirth, and Informed Choices.
Part 2: Understanding Labor and Breastfeeding- How to make labor and breastfeeding go well, and what to expect in the first few weeks with a breastfed baby.
Nurtured Mother, Baby, Family (Part 3)
This postpartum preparation class covers similar information as the last two weeks of our six-part series
Often so much time is spent preparing for childbirth, that couples feel at a loss for what to do once the baby arrives. This class is designed to help families prepare for a healthy postpartum and a new normal. We will cover developing secure attachment and healthy transitions when adding a tiny person to your family.
