Private Natural Childbirth Class
This is a one-on-one, four class childbirth education course. Each class is two hours. This is ideal if your schedule does not allow you to take a full Bradley course, but you still would like something more thorough and practical than a hospital childbirth class. This class focuses on techniques for natural childbirth without pain medication. However, if you are planning on an epidural, this class is very effective as well as you can use the techniques to keep you comfortable until you are ready for your epidural. This class teaches exercises, stretches, nutrition, relaxation techniques, comfort measures, labor practice, birth physiology, baby positioning and its importance in pregnancy and labor, birth plan preparation, and breastfeeding introduction. Streamed videos will be assigned to watch each week and reading assignments will be given. There are three options for how to take this class:
1) This class can be taught in your home if you are within a 15 minute distance from Bolingbrook.
2) This class can be arranged at a Bolingbrook location if you are not within the distance requirement.
3) This class can be taught virtually over zoom.
