Class Content

In our classes, by using stimulating, lively discussions and interesting exercises, we:

  • learn about the stages of labour
  • discuss interventions
  • learn how to make informed choices
  • learn about comfort measures and optimal maternal positioning
  • discuss pain medications
  • build a pain-coping mindset
  • explore birth fears and expectations
  • learn how to cope with unexpected or unwanted events during labour
  • prepare for the postpartum period (including breastfeeding)

Every class begins with learning and practicing pain-coping techniques!

Every series includes a postpartum reunion and a special class for partners.

In the special class for partners, partners learn:

  • labour etiquette: what to do and not do
  • how to protect the labour space and be a “birth guardian”
  • how to be present in labour while taking care of themselves
