Childbirth Classes

Are you hoping for a low-intervention or natural birth in the hospital?

Come learn in a fun, relaxing atmosphere the natural  progression of labor and birth, comfort measures, birth planning  options, and informed decision making skills to help you reach your goals. This  is an evidence-based series of childbirth classes covering everything from getting ready for  labor and birth through to caring for baby and mom after birth,  including breastfeeding. All classes are filled with learning  activities, birth stories, comfort measure practice and relaxation time.  Each mother or couple registered for the complete series is given the  workbook, Prepared Childbirth the Family Way, as well as a  folder with the class outlines and handouts. We meet in South Mobile County not far from I-10. Please call or email to register or to get  more information. I would love to help you prepare for your baby's  arrival!
