CLASSES

We understand the importance of preparing for the birth of your baby and being able to have some control in a situation that is mostly out of your control. We encourage participation in classes that will help you prepare for the birth in a setting that respects your privacy and allows you to be actively involved with decisions and preparation for the birth. We offer private birthing classes with a nurse or birth educator. Knowing what to expect can alleviate many fears during this time.
