In this fun and interactive class you will learn the Lamaze "Healthy Birth Practices" that are supported by research that examines the benefits and risks of maternity care practices. These practices represent the best things a mother can do to ensure positive, healthy birth outcomes for both she and her baby.  This class is perfect for women and their support person to attend virtual or in person (please feel welcome to attend if you do not have anyone to attend with you).  We cover all the topics a new mom should know before birth.  Returning moms are welcome to attend this class if they would like a refresher of what to expect. This class is taught by our area’s only Lamaze Certified Instructor and is offered to you free as our commitment to providing quality care for you and your family.

When registering for class, you only have to register one person. Choose “Virtual” or “In person” class.

Virtual Lamaze Class

What Should I Have Available at Home for the Virtual Class?

  • Two pillows and one blanket or yoga mat.
  • A chair without arms like a kitchen chair.
  • A yoga ball if you own one.
  • A computer, tablet or smartphone to join the class virtually.

Helpful Google Meets Tips

  • Sometimes the sound in Google Meets is not very good or there is feedback. If you find this turn the sound off on your device and use your phone to call in, but still watch the video on your computer.
  • Mute yourself, but turn your microphone on to ask questions. I really want to encourage you to ask questions. Please interrupt me if you have a question or type your question in the side bar. Interaction is why we want to have the class be "live" and not just a recording.
