This one-session class, required for first-time parents, and highly recommended for experienced parents who are new to birth center care, is designed to provide specific education regarding the early care of yourself and your newborn from the time you leave The Birth Center until your Home Visit. We will review basic newborn care, normal newborn behavior, and taking your and baby’s vital signs in the early postpartum period.
$60 per couple
At this time, our First Days at Home class is only offered to LWC clients.
“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.”
