Are you looking for a childbirth preparation class that gives you the flexibility of online learning, and the support of in-person connections? This class is for you! Part One of the class is completed in the comfort of your home using InJoy’s Understanding Birth Web App. You’ll learn all about what to expect during pregnancy and labor, newborns and postpartum through videos, animations, and by following four families who share their birth stories. The app provides you with tools to complete your own birth plan and write down notes and questions to take with you to Part Two of this class: Classroom Practice. During Part Two a certified childbirth educator will help you apply what you learned as you practice comfort techniques and discuss questions with other expectant women and their partners. 

This class will be limited to 4 couples. Face masks will be required of all participants and instructors. Please plan to bring your own face mask.
