This class is recommended for couples wanting to learn how to apply Lamaze techniques for coping with pain in labor and birth who plan to deliver without anesthesia. During the eight hours of this two day class series, you and your labor partner practice using Lamaze breathing and relaxation techniques and the comfort measures and techniques for your support persons that were discussed in part two of the Special Delivery class. If you have previously experienced a Lamaze birth, this class would be good to refresh your memory.
Plan to take this class during the last eight to ten weeks of pregnancy and after attending the Special Delivery
Class. The fee is per couple.
Another class to consider:
- Mom and coach should wear comfortable slacks or shorts as you will be on the floor practicing breathing and relaxation techniques. Also, bring a jacket if you chill easily.
- If this class is held during your dinner hour, we encourage you to either eat before you come to class or to bring snack food with you to eat during class. The Saturday 9:00 AM-3:00 PM class will break one hour for lunch on your own.
Please register under the mom's name as attendee. The spouse or partner is the guest.
