Four-week Childbirth Series Class
Our Four-week Childbirth Series prepares expectant parents for their birth experience and the arrival of baby! Practical comfort skills, which include positioning and breathing, to be used during late pregnancy, labor, delivery, and beyond are taught by our experienced instructors.
Information about pain management options, understanding the labor process, and what to expect during your stay at OMC are part of this series. A tour of the BirthCenter is also offered at the end of the series.
Please sign up by your sixth month of pregnancy. Plan to wear comfortable clothing and bring two pillows to every class.
