Childbirth Prep Series derives tools and techniques from a broad and diverse range of sources covering all the core topics of any comprehensive childbirth preparation class. The Blossom Birth series is known to have great balance between theory and practice allowing you to arrive the day of your birth knowledgeable and confident, outfitted with a vast variety of labor support tools. Couples tell us they especially appreciate the practical approach that goes beyond what is typically covered in basic books or classes.

 

Included in this series:

  • breathing and relaxation techniques
  • positions of comfort
  • partner support
  • visualization
  • options regarding labor variations
  • pain management
  • informed consent
  • complications and medical interventions

 

Visual aids and films add a true view of labor and delivery with its many variations and personal coping techniques. Small group size allows for more individual attention and time to discuss topics of concern. You will come away with a clear understanding of labor on the physical as well as emotional level.

Childbirth Preparation Series meet weekly for 5 weeks from 7:00-9:30 or 3 Saturdays 2:00-6:00 on selected dates

Childbirth Prep Intensive meets one Sunday from 12:00-6:00 pm on selected dates
