One of the blessings and curses of pregnancy is that suddenly everyone will give you advice about pregnancy, birth, and parenting - lots of it! It can be hard to sort out evidence-based information from old wives&rsquo tales and to keep your own personal priorities clear amid the clamor of suggestions. This class will help you:
&bull Understand what happens physiologically during a healthy labor and birth
&bull Form your own personal philosophy about birth
&bull Advocate for yourself during your birth
&bull Prepare for the amazing journey of becoming a parent
You&rsquo ll leave the class with a well-practiced toolkit of strategies for labor and birth, handy reference materials, and an introduction to a small community of other new parents. This class is designed for pregnant women in their third trimester to attend with a partner and is appropriate regardless of whether you&rsquo re planning a hospital or home birth.
