Preparing for Childbirth

Perfect for those looking for a quick course which will educate and empower you!

 

We will cover birth preparation, empowerment, the stages of labor, challenges & interventions, and the first hour of life including breastfeeding. The Plumtree Preparing for Birth Manual, as well as handouts, are provided for you to learn more at home.  The class is centered around a powerpoint, class discussion, games/practice, and videos. 

Class sizes are kept small at 3-5 couples. There are couches, chairs, bean bags, and birth balls for seating. You are encouraged to bring other items for comfort- yoga mat, pillows, blankets, or your own birth ball. Snacks are provided and may include cheese & crackers, sweet bread, hummus, fruit, and veggies. You are asked to bring your own drink.
