“It is not only that we want to bring about an easy labor, without risking injury to the mother or the child; we must go further. We must understand that childbirth is fundamentally a spiritual, as well as a physical, achievement. . . The birth of a child is the ultimate perfection of human love.”
– Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, 1953
Pregnancy is a time of great change as your body grows to accommodate your growing baby; it is a season where parents prepare for the arrival of their precious new blessing. Even though birth is considered a normal body function for women, it is important to prepare for birth emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Our childbirth classes will help you acquire knowledge that will help you alleviate fear of the birthing process.
One Day Intensive Class
This childbirth class is great for a couple who cannot attend an evening class or those who are already experienced in childbirth. This is a 5-hour class and covers just the basics of labor and delivery.
This class is a knowledge-based Christian class that will encourage you in your faith as you prepare for labor and birth.
- Comfort Measures
- Understanding Labor Challenges
- Greeting Your Baby
- Postpartum Expectations
Class registration includes a One Day Childbirth Class and the 2-book set needed for the class (Christian Childbirth Handbook and Christian Childbirth Workbook). The cost of this course is $160.
Spinning Babies® Parent Class
Spinning Babies® Parent Class highlights your baby’s active role in birth. During labor, your baby needs to pass through “3 levels” of the pelvis. Learn techniques to help your pelvis and the muscles that support, or restrict, your pelvic “levels”. Together, you and your birth partner can use these techniques before and during labor to help “make room for baby”!
Spinning Babies® reveals how your baby can find optimal positions for labor, make birth less painful, and even pleasurable.
This class is for expectant parents. Birth professionals will need to take a Spinning Babies® Workshop to learn these techniques.
The cost of this class is $95 and includes the Spinning Babies Companion Workbook.
