Prepared Childbirth – BASICS

Childbirth classes are perfect for any expectant parent who wants to know what will happen in labor and delivery and beyond.  We will provide you with a book that has online tools and apps to assist in self-learning.  The 2 hour Webinar will then give a summary of the most important information and give you time to ask questions, seek clarification, and get feedback.

This class is only offered via live Webinar.

NOTE: The Childbirth Classic class are in person Saturday childbirth classes.  If you would like a more detailed Childbirth class, please see our Lamaze Focus Classes!
