Water Birth Class


While this class is designed for expectant couples looking to learn more about water births, it is requested that students have prior discussion with their birth provider about having a water birth.  Meriter's educators discuss the benefits of water birth, safety strategies, comfort measures, pain management and ways your partner can support you during the birth. This class is specific to water birth and does not take the place of other Childbirth Education programming.

Important Class Information

  • 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.
