Childbirth Education Approved Classes

To ensure a smooth and informed childbirth experience, we require first-time parents, first time VBAC clients, and those who had pain medications with their last delivery to complete a comprehensive childbirth education course.

These classes need to be taught by a live instructor (not a pre-recorded class), ideally with your in-person attendance (not Zoom, Skype, Google Meet, WebEx, etc.). The recommended timeframe to start these classes is around 28 weeks of pregnancy, with completion by 34-35 weeks.
