Prenatal Class Refresher

Preparing for Birth Again is an excellent refresher class for anyone who is seeking to have a different experience with their next birth. This 3-hour class designed for anyone who is pregnant and has previously given birth vaginally or via cesarean (C-section).

Topics covered include:

  • processing your previous birth experience
  • relaxation techniques and identifying fears
  • advocating for preferences using informed consent BRAINS acronym
  • writing birth plans and preferences
  • VBAC information (vaginal birth after cesarean)
