A 1-day intensive designed for the expecting couple.

Most people do not have weeks or entire weekends to devote to classes. Our small groups allow you to cover in one day the same information that would take weeks to cover in larger groups.

Our small classes provide comprehensive information on childbirth with an emphasis on the reality of birth in NYC:

  • How your body prepares for labor and how to recognize the signs of labor

  • The stages of labor - what to expect at each stage

  • Timing contractions and when to go to the hospital or birthing center

  • What to expect when you arrive at the hospital or birthing center

  • Natural coping techniques

  • Monitoring

  • Pain medication options

  • Induction

  • Cesarean delivery

  • Tips for partners

  • Tips on the best way to travel in NYC during labor!

Cost: $395 per couple. This includes the pregnant person and partner or support person.
