Private 6 Hour Condensed Childbirth Education Series

Designed for experienced parents who are looking for a refresher course, this class is a condensed version of my 12 hour Lamaze Series with topics that include comfort measures, nutrition, breastfeeding, postpartum and must more! This course is taught over the course of two 3-hour days and is offered Monday through Thursday either during the day or in the evening depending on your schedule. The condensed classes allow plenty of time for questions at the end if topics are not covered that you have interest in.
