About This Event

  • Event Type:Class

Our class offers an overview of what to expect and how to guide yourself through the phases of labor. A complete demonstration of birth with the use of 3-D video will be viewed. The expectant mother and support person will learn relaxation models, breathing techniques to manage labor discomforts, and positions in labor that the labor nurse may ask you to perform to facilitate your baby’s safe passage through the delivery canal. Pain control options, labor interventions, and cesarean deliveries will also be addressed. Sample labor will be used to practice relaxation and breathing techniques learned. Videos on postpartum care and newborn characteristics will also be viewed and discussed.
