This one-session class is for parents who have already experienced childbirth, but would like a chance to refresh their memories. Review of the process of labor and recognizing when it starts will be covered, as well as an overview of pain-coping techniques, birth center and hospital policies/protocols/procedures, hospital transfer (if applicable), and the immediate postpartum period. Sibling adjustment will also be briefly discussed. In addition to review, this class provides an opportunity to connect with other parents, provide and receive encouragement and inspiration, ask questions, solicit advice, and offer suggestions.
$60 per couple
Childbirth Refresher is open to everyone, both LWC and non-LWC clients (as space permits). Please feel free to spread the word!
“Having delivered twice at The Birth Center at LWC, I couldn’t be happier with my experiences. I felt so cared for and safe there. Welcoming, comforting, trustworthy—the combination of the homey feel I wanted with professional, experienced midwives and nurses let me relax, knowing I was in good hands. The midwives, always there when we needed them, also seemed to know just when to give us space. When pushing became difficult during my second birth, the midwife quickly assessed the situation and helped me get things back on track. I can’t imagine birthing anywhere else.”
