The Fourth Trimester

This one-session class, required for first-time LWC parents who are planning a hospital birth, is designed to help you survive and thrive during the “fourth trimester.” We’ll discuss newborn behavior, babywearing, limiting visitors while also soliciting the right kind of help, finding your “tribe”/utilizing local and online support, postpartum self-care, sleep, setting realistic goals/having realistic expectations, and much, much more!

$60 per couple (in-arms babies are welcome!)

The Fourth Trimester is open to everyone, both LWC and non-LWC clients. 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.”
