Bare Basics of Childbirth

Bare Basic of Childbirth is a one-day intensive class that gives first-time parents (or parents who want a refresher) valuable tools and evidence-based information to prepare for your birth. Our instructor, Sutay Berman, a specially trained registered nurse and doula, will cover the normal physical and emotional experiences of late-stage pregnancy, labor, and birth including: possible medical interventions, cesarean birth, anesthesia and epidurals, natural options for coping with labor, and tips for caring for yourself and your newborn at home. A Family Birth Center tour is included.

We recommend that you also take Capable, Confident and Coping: Labor Techniques that Work. This class will help you practice labor techniques.

This is a long class, please bring a lunch and snacks as you wish. There are limited cafateria options available but there will be time to go to one of the many close by restaurants.
