I teach childbirth preparation classes in which the mother and her partner learn what to expect, comfort and support measures for labor, and what to do in the event of unexpected situations. Emphasis is on natural birth techniques, but the class is appropriate for all birth preferences: hospital, home, birth center, medicated, unmedicated.
-Classes help in east bay location of Concord.
-Each class session 2hr 15-30 min long.
-I recommend you begin when you are between 20-26 wks pregnant to ensure you complete the course before your baby arrives!
Topics will include: nutrition, strengthening exercises, pregnancy physiology, birth plan, labor partner's role, labor stages, labor practice, relaxation techniques, labor complications and variations, newborn care, breastfeeding, postpartum issues, partner communication, birth videos
