Classes are Friday nights in Bowie, MD. If you are planning to have your baby at home, a birth center, or with birth center midwives in hospital, this class will give you the nuts and bolts of un-medicated labor. Learn what happens before, during, and after birth, as well as variations of labor. We’ll cover comfort measures and relaxation as well as how your partner can help.
