Childbirth Basics


If you are limited in time and are looking for just the facts, Birth Basics is for you. A one-time, information-only class covering the very basics of labor including labor stages, basic terminology, and medication options. This is a lecture-oriented class designed for people who are looking for information. There is no hands-on practice done in class. In addition to this class, we recommend you also enroll in Baby's First Weeks to learn about newborn care, and Basics of Breastfeeding.
