Information on induction, cesarean, premature birth and more, to help you feel prepared regardless of the outcome of your labour.
We will go over all your options for pain management, both medical and natural. Acquire tools to labour naturally, but also learn about epidurals, IV medications and interventions/procedures that may come up during labour.
Learn positions for labour and for pushing.
