Labor & Birth

Condensed Course

Evidence based labor and birth course designed specifically to increase your confidence to have a positive birth experience.

Duration: 5 Hours

Time: 10:00 AM - 3:30 PM Saturday


Description: This course is based on Lamaze's 6 Healthy Birth Practices, designed specifically to increase your chances of a fulfilling and positive birth experience. Studies show that birth satisfaction is most associated with feeling heard and involved in decision making during labor. This course will prepare you mentally and emotionally to conquer your fears and equip you with the knowledge to make informed decisions based on the best medical evidence available.
