Childbirth Preparation - Fast Track, 3 Sessions (Palo Alto)
This condensed three week series is offered for mothers and the labor support person of their choosing whose schedules don't allow for our traditional series. Our certified and experienced childbirth educators will help you prepare for the physical and emotional challenges of childbirth.
Labor and delivery
Stages of labor: timing, contractions, when to go to hospital
Coping with labor: breathing techniques, positions, comfort measures, support
Hospital policies, medical procedures and birth options
Medications and anesthesia
A supplemental Skills class is available monthly at no cost for couples enrolled in this series who would like additional time to practice labor support techniques and comfort strategies.
**Tours of El Camino hospital are available to students who take a childbirth preparation class at PAMF and are delivering at that facility. Those couples delivering at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital (Palo Alto), Washington Hospital (Fremont), Sutter Maternity and Surgery (Santa Cruz) and Sequoia Hospital (Redwood City) should contact the hospital directly for tour information.
