This series covers all the basics and is a must for first-time moms! About two to three months before your due date, you will begin a series of Prepared Childbirth classes. Register early! If you want a coach with you throughout your labor and delivery, be sure to bring your spouse, partner, or a supportive friend to this series. Together you'll learn and practice special relaxation and breathing techniques to make you more comfortable. You will also take a tour and meet the staff of The Birthplace to help you learn what to expect when you deliver your baby, how to care for your neworn, and get a sneak preview of things to come. If you have questions regarding which class to register for, please call the Community Health and Education Department at 248-652-5269 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bring 2 pillows and a blanket to class.
