Mindful Birth


Mindfulness is a state of active and open attention to the present moment. In this 2-class series, we will focus on gaining skills of mindfulness meditation and relaxation techniques as they relate to labor and delivery.  Through mindfulness practice, participants learn to work with challenges, such as pain and anxiety, that can often arise during the birthing experience.

Important Class Information

  • It is recommended that you begin classes after your first trimester is complete and plan to finish your classes at least 3 weeks before your due date.
  • It is suggested that this class be taken in combination with the Confident Homecoming series or our Preparing for Childbirth class.
  • Registration fee includes a total of 2 people.
  • Having children or extra people attending these classes is prohibited due to the graphic content of some instructional material and dialog, as well as the partner-specific activities.
