This two-hour class is geared towards our patients who have already had a natural (drug-free) delivery with a previous births, typically in a different setting. The class will briefly review stages of labor, potential coping measures, and birth center procedures and transfer policies. Two BCNWA birth videos are watched in class. The remainder of class time is spent reviewing the postpartum period and how you can best prepare for caring for a newborn with older children at home too.
If you gave birth previously in the hospital with an epidural, regardless of how many children you have had, you will be required to take one of the more comprehensive class series.
