Comfort Measures for Birth and Beyond

Comfort Measures for Birth and Beyond is a fun and interactive 3-hour course that focuses on non-medicated pain management options for comfort during labor. Instructors will use a blend of lecture, discussion and relaxation techniques to help couples develop their own personal toolkit of comfort measures allowing them to move through labor with confidence. Bring your partner or support person, dress comfortably, and be prepared to move and practice labor positions and relaxation! This is NOT a stand-alone childbirth class. Couples are expected to understand stages of labor and the birth process prior to attending. We recommend this course as a supplement to our Understanding Childbirth eClass or Virtual Childbirth Express. Also a great “refresher” course for couples expecting their second or subsequent child.

Masks are optional for participants and instructors.
