Get Ready for Healthier Childbirth
Ann Arbor Baby Beginnings is offering a four-week Childbirth Preparation class from 6 to 8:30 p.m., January 6, 14, 20 and 27 via Zoom online. This is an interactive class with many hands-on activities that includes online material, activities and labor position practice.
The class is a comprehensive childbirth education option and provides plenty of time for in-depth discussion and questions. Topics include late pregnancy, signs and stages of labor, when to go to the hospital, medical interventions, informed decision making and the early postpartum period.
All instructors are Lamaze-certified childbirth educators and classes generally adhere to the Lamaze International philosophy of pregnancy, birth and parenting, including viewing birth as a normal, healthy experience that has a profound affect on women and their families. The focus in all Lamaze classes is on teaching evidence-based information that empowers women and their families to make informed choices in both their own health care and in the care of their children.
