Fees & Payment

Natural Childbirth $180

Description

Natural Childbirth

This one-day course is designed for expectant parents who want to learn coping skills for labor that will help them avoid or minimize the use of medication. You’ll discover ways to break the Fear-Tension-Pain cycle in order to allow the body to work as nature intended.

In this interactive class, you’ll learn about and practice:

  • Positioning and movement that increase comfort for mother and encourage baby to pass more easily through her pelvis
  • The use of labor massage and pressure techniques
  • Breathing techniques drawn from yogic, Bradley®, and Lamaze® practice
  • Coping mechanisms such as visualization, aromatherapy, and hydrotherapy to reduce stress and help the uterus work more efficiently

You’ll learn about the stages of labor, postpartum changes, and what to expect from your newborn in the first hours and days of life. Your instructor will also review interventions available to you, should they become medically necessary, such as cesarean birth, induction of labor, and medication options. This class includes a tour of the Bain Birthing Center.

Natural Childbirth meets on a Saturday or Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Short breaks are scheduled in as is time for lunch. You may choose to bring your own lunch or dine in our cafeteria on the second floor of the hospital.

Cost: $180 per couple

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations are accepted up to one day prior to class for a full refund, minus a $35 processing fee.
