Well-Rounded Childbirth Classes
Whether you are looking for a natural drug-free birth or want to explore your options regarding pain medication during labor, you will get the information and skills to best accomplish the kind of birth experience you desire. Recommended by more doctors and midwives in Milwaukee, this class will prepare you for a healthier pregnancy, smoother labor & birth, and easier postpartum recovery. Ideal for all first-time parents-to-be, regardless of where you are having your baby.
Instead of teaching a particular birthing ‘method,’ this comprehensive 8-week class covers a variety of topics including: Sound nutrition and physical exercise to enhance low-risk pregnancies and labors; Enhancing the various stages of labor; Pain management; Birth interventions, alternatives & plans; Relaxation, breathing & comfort techniques; Avoiding or dealing with labor complications; Postpartum and baby care.
(If you miss a class you may make it up with one of the other sections.)
Following the births, each class celebrates with a reunion to meet the babies, share birth stories and cement relationships with other like-minded parents.
Cost: $275 per couple (you may prepay online or pay at the first class). Week nights, 6:30-9:00 p.m. See schedule below.
Home/Birth Center Childbirth Classes
If you are planning on giving birth at home or a birth center, this 3-week series is ideally suited for you. In addition to learning the stages of labor and comfort techniques, explore how giving birth ‘out-of-hospital’ is different and ways to enhance your experience.
Cost: $150 per couple. Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. See schedule below
Refresher Childbirth Classes
For couples who are expecting again, this 3-hour class is an ideal way to review the stages of labor, comfort and relaxation techniques. With a first pregnancy most couples have the flexibility to spend ample time in preparing for the birth. Once there is a toddler in the picture, however, busy couples may find that the refresher class is the first chance that they have had to focus on this pregnancy and birth!
Cost: $75 per couple (you must prepay). Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. *Note: A minimum of 2 couples is required or class will be rescheduled.
