Childbirth Extended/Express Class

As the birth of your baby gets closer, it’s common to have anxiety and lots of questions. Education is the key to decreasing any nervousness you may have. The more you know and understand about the process of labor, the better prepared you will be. By choosing the Extended Class, you will have extra time to practice breathing, massage and relaxation techniques with instructor help.
