Childbirth Education

Your one-on-one childbirth and breastfeeding education sessions present prospective parents with practical lessons on the labor and delivery process as well as breathing and relaxation techniques which can ease discomfort during birth. Included are discussions on nutrition and diet, the use of medication and anesthesia during labor, caesarean birth, post partum emotional and physiological changes, maternal and newborn care after delivery, parenting, and a tour of the Vernon Memorial Birthing Center.
