Some people wonder why a mother needs childbirth classes...

Classes provide current research and up-to-date information so that you can effectively and positively communicate with your medical team. 
Classes provide you time to practice relaxation techniques to effectively manage pain. 
You and your partner will learn about a woman's anatomy and the logistics of childbirth. 
Your partner will learn how to coach you through this amazingly athletic - yet most miraculous - event.

Whether you choose to give birth in a hospital, a birthing center, or at home, the birth of your child is exactly that: YOURS.
