These six-week sessions will meet on consecutive Tuesdays and Thursdays via Zoom from 6 – 8 pm. The virtual classes consist of a five-week condensed Childbirth Education Course with a focus on Deep Relaxation for Pregnancy, Childbirth and Beyond, and an additional session that will cover Breastfeeding Education.

Our Childbirth Education course covers:
  • Physiology of normal birth
  • Non-medical and medical comfort measures for labor and birth
  • Cesarean birth
  • Standard hospital procedures during labor, birth and early postpartum
  • Relaxation tools for birth and beyond
  • Partner preparation for birth support
  • and more

Once you register you will receive a confirmation email with the ZOOM LINK  for all the classes in the series; please note, your confirmation email also serves as your receipt for reimbursement for your insurance company.  You will also receive a reminder email the week before the series starts.  Save this ZOOM LINK as it is needed to be able to attend your classes.

Classes are taught by Certified Childbirth Educator Ann Buscemi, ICCE CHT.
