Childbirth Education Classes

CHOICE classes explore the processes of labor and delivery, along with preparation—both physical and emotional—for birth. Our classes are two and a half hours long and meet once a week for six weeks.

Alternative Birth Series

Our Alternative Birth Series is designed for couples who are planning to give birth at home, in an alternative birth center, or in a birthing room. We offer instruction in Lamaze, Kitzinger, LeBoyer and other labor techniques. Our classes include slide presentations and videotapes of women giving birth at home, in birth centers and in the hospital. We also explore the processes of labor and delivery, along with preparation—both physical and emotional–for birth. We explain the importance and techniques of perineal massage and support, and describe the process of birth and catching a baby.
