Childbirth Preparation - 5 Sessions, Wednesdays (Santa Cruz)
This multiple session class prepares expectant mothers and their partners for labor and birth and ideally should be completed 4-6 weeks prior to their due date. Certified Childbirth Educators or Labor and Delivery Nurses cover stages of labor, hospital procedures, medications, cesareans, birthing options and postpartum recovery using video, lecture and group discussion.
