Childbirth Education

  • Nook Mosaic 2905 District Avenue, Suite 115 Fairfax, VA, 22031 United States (map)

A must-have for all new expecting parents! In this class, you will be educated on topics ranging from end of pregnancy through the immediate postpartum period. Some of the themes we discuss include preparation and expectation for a hospital birth; signs of labor; stages of labor; pain medication options (including epidurals) as well as suggestions for things to do in each stage of labor to cope with contractions; possible interventions in labor including inductions, monitoring and cesarean sections. Class concludes with postpartum concerns and resources to help when the baby arrives. Class is seated, but stretching or walking around at any point is certainly welcome. Snacks are provided. All clients will receive our Stork Childbirth Education Survival Guide complete with a hospital packing list, when to call your health care provider, recommended pediatricians, lactation consultant and doula referrals.
