This class program is taught by a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE) and is aimed toward preparing those that are planning natural childbirth, or those that would just like a more in-depth preparation for their childbirth. The class is based on the premise that a woman's body naturally knows how to deliver her baby. Instruction will emphasize the six Lamaze Healthy Birth Practices. These practices are based on medical evidence and are designed to promote and support safe and healthy pregnancy and birth.
The program will consist of six weekly sessions and will cover preparation for birth, as well as breastfeeding and transitioning into parenthood.
This class is offered free to those delivering at Southeast Hospital.
All others will be charged a $200 fee that will be collected on the first night of class.
