Childbirth Express

The Virtual Childbirth Express class is offered as three 2-hour classes via Zoom. This class is conducted by a live instructor and will cover the same material as our in-person Childbirth Express class. Time is allotted for Q&A during each 2-hour session.

  • Class topics include:
    • Pregnancy basics
    • Understanding labor and birth
    • Medication and anesthesia
    • The basics of Cesarean birth
    • The early post-partum period

    Relaxation techniques are introduced in class for partners to practice on their own at home. If you are interested in practicing relaxation techniques in class, with feedback offered from an experienced childbirth education instructor, Childbirth Preparation may be the more appropriate class for you.

    Parents who plan to breastfeed should take a separate Breastfeeding class.
