Prenatal Childbirth Class — Two Day

Classes fill quickly. We recommend registering around week 24 of your pregnancy so you are about 32 weeks pregnant when you attend class. (Earlier if you're giving birth to twins).

This is a LIVE virtual class held online through Zoom.

This childbirth education class is designed to prepare you for your upcoming childbirth experience. Topics include information about relaxation breathing, pain management options, and understanding the process of labor.

This childbirth class is divided into two 3-hour sessions for those who prefer shorter class sessions.

REGISTERING ADDITIONAL ATTENDEES

The registration fee is for a single attendee and includes the cost of materials. You may add a second attendee (a birth partner or support person) at no additional charge, but there is no discount to the fee if only one person attends. The additional attendee MUST be accounted for at the time of registration in order to reserve their spot. To do this, please choose “2” next to “attendees” in the box below when you select the date of your session. You must also fill in the details of this extra person during the registration process. The maximum number of people per registration is two.

CANCELLATIONS & WAITLIST

If a registered person cannot attend, please contact us at hfarrah@emersonhosp.org so that we may make that spot available to someone else. If you would like to be added to the waitlist for a specific class, please let us know at the above email. No refunds will be given except for the birth of the child or for medical reasons.

Nancy grew up in Arlington, Mass., graduated from Yale, then went to study in England where she lived for the next 26 years. Both of her sons were born in London and after experiencing the value of birthing courses firsthand, she trained at Bedford University (UK) as a childbirth educator with the National Childbirth Trust. Upon returning to Boston in 2007, she retrained with CAPPA and subsequently also certified as a lactation counselor. She is delighted to teach a wide variety of pre- and post-natal classes. Nancy’s main goal is to build new parents’ confidence for the adventure that awaits them.
