In this eight-hour class, you'll explore what birth is really like, recognize the signs of each stage of labor, practice positions that will keep you comfortable and your birth progressing, discover popular pain management techniques, and get tips on what to do when things don't go as planned. Partners will learn many ways to be the best birth partner too! A workbook is included to use as a reference guide during labor. Register here.
