We believe childbirth is simply a natural process in a woman’s life, but it is also an intense experience that requires a lot of commitment and stamina. It can be equated to running a marathon, and because of the great demands, we want our clients to be adequately prepared. While we do encourage all of our clients to take an extensive childbirth class, all our first-time parents, VBAC clients, and those attempting their first out-of-hospital or natural birth are required to take a minimum 10 week childbirth education class. The results of having had that education are astounding. Educated parents approach birth with confidence, knowledge, and assurance from what they have learned.
