Harmony Childbirth Express
This is our “basic” childbirth preparation class.
Parts 1 & 2:
Through discussion, videos, practice, sample scenarios, and incorporating a variety of techniques, this course gives a personalized overview of both “normal” labor patterns and also variations to help you prepare to move through your unique labor. read more
Get an unaffiliated look at your own role in the process, ways to communicate positively and effectively with your caregivers, whether to create a birth plan, and what to expect from your care-provider and birthplace, including familiarizing with policies, standards (and where there is flexibility), and some of the common medical practices and medications. Most importantly, know your options so you know you are making good informed decisions about your baby’s and your care!
Comfort Measures for Labor: Learn and practice personal coping mindsets and techniques for any type of labor, as well as crucial partner support tools. This includes breathing techniques, relaxation, massage, positioning, and how your partner can help! read more
For parents hoping to delay or avoid the use of pain medications we recommend one of the longer, more thorough childbirth prep styles, OR if you are choosing our weekend express class (or taking one at your hospital/provider’s office), we strongly recommend taking the Part 3, Comfort Measures for Labor Workshop, to provide enough coping, comfort, and support ideas and practice to support your goals for your labor.
