Prerequisite: Childbirth Preparation Class or previous birth
This class is designed to build on the skills you learned in a Childbirth Preparation class and provide a more in-depth, hands on experience for learning comfort techniques for labor such as positioning, massage, and breathing. Alternative therapies such as aromatherapy, acupressure, visualization and imagery techniques will be reviewed in a quiet, casual environment so that you and your support person are well equipped with a variety of tools for labor.
This class will help you:
- Master additional skills for managing the pain of labor
- Explore the enhanced role of partners during labor and birth
- Refresh your skills from a previous birth
Labor Lab should be taken with your labor support person after your childbirth preparation course or as a refresher course.
The class fee is $30 per couple.
The class involves activities requiring two people and if your partner or primary support person is unable to attend, we strongly encourage you to bring an alternate support person to assist with this role.
If you cancel your registration prior to two weeks before the start of class, we will provide a refund, less a $10 processing fee. Refunds cannot be given after that time. We are unable to transfer registration fees to another class should you miss your scheduled class. Occasionally, due to low enrollment, we must cancel a class. In those instances, we are happy to provide a full refund or assist you in selecting another class.
In case of bad weather, please call the main hospital phone number at 303-689-4000 two hours before class start time for cancellation information. If the class is cancelled, you will be contacted the next business day to reschedule.
