Express Childbirth Class
Our 3-hour express is a fast and furious no-frills childbirth class in a nutshell for the Seriously Busy New Yorker!
Ideal for parents with limited time who prefer a superfast, overview approach. This class can help inspire and identify subjects that expectant parents want to pursue more thoroughly such as doulas, comfort techniques, and birth preferences.
Students seeking practice time, conversation, discussion, or time to connect with other parents should consider our longer class options.
The focus will be on:
- Signs and Stages of Labor
- Pain Management Techniques overview: breathing, relaxation, position choices, massage, pressure points, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, vocalization and much more
- Pain Medication Options
- Understanding Medical Support or Interventions and Induction
- Cesarean Birth and Prevention
Price is per couple or single + support person.
