Childbirth Classes

Babies By Nature childbirth classes are based on the Lamaze Six Healthy Birth Practices.

These practices are designed based on years of research to simplify your birth process with an informed approach that helps alleviate your fears and manage pain. Babies By Nature childbirth classes are designed to give birthing parents the knowledge to make informed decisions and learn coping techniques during labor. Classes are primarily directed towards achieving an unmedicated birth; however, if you intend to get medications for pain relief during labor or just want to keep your options open, these classes are a perfect way to prepare for the many paths your birth may take.
