Childbirth Education

We understand that expectant parents are often filled with questions and anxieties about the upcoming labor and birth of their baby. That's why we offer childbirth education classes to help you prepare for the big day. Our classes emphasize natural childbirth with an emphasis on relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, nutrition guidelines and more to assist you in having an positive and empowering birthing experience.
