Labor, delivery and postpartum education:  This is a 4 hour group class held on a Saturday once a quarter. Labor and birth is covered in the morning and after the potluck lunch shared with the other couples in your class, breastfeeding and newborn care is covered. 

 

Natural pain relief for labor: This is a 2 hour class on Monday evening. In this class you will learn natural pain relief techniques for labor. This class is especially helpful for your birth partner. 

 

Lending library: You will have access to a lending library of books and DVD’s about pregnancy, childbirth, newborn care, nutrition and alternative medicine.
