We offer a condensed version of our full class. Geared towards expectant parents who have previously delivered and want a Childbirth review.
Our Express Refresher class will cover the basics of the following topics: The Stages of Labor and Delivery- how to know you are in labor, timing contractions, when to come to the hospital, AJH policies and procedures you should be aware of. Information about Vaginal Births, pain management options, post partum care and concerns are covered in video format. We will offer the option to view a C-section video at the end of the class.
A Childbirth Preparation book will be provided for each couple to take home. This class is condensed information for review while still offering some formal preparation for your upcoming childbirth experience. As with our other Childbirth Class options, this class does not cover the content in Caring for Baby or the Breastfeeding Classes. There are times when moms who have previously given birth feel they would benefit from taking the Breastfeeding 1 class as a refresher or because they did not previously nurse. Some couples would like a refresher on infant care- and take our Caring for Baby class before the birth.
If you would like to take the Expectant Parent Orientation- the Labor and Delivery Tour, please register for that as a separate option as it is not included as a part of our Express Refresher Class.
Please note- when registering for this prenatal class, the fee is per couple. You need only register the expectant mothers name. When you register a support person, our system counts it as 2 couples. There is no need to register an additional name with moms when you register. Thank you.
Class fee is $80/couple.
Please bring a water bottle and snacks.
