The flexibility of our classes work well with busy schedules and allow you to focus on what you really need to learn. An experienced Childbirth Educator will prepare you and your partner on what to expect and share techniques to help you feel empowered. Couples finish our program feeling relieved and confident to transition in their new role as parents.
