Imagine Your Birth with Kathy Killebrew
10 Week Series with Kathy Killebrew
Tuesdays at 7pm (at PlayLab) or Sundays at 6pm (In La Canada)
In this 10 week series couples receive more than just a basic childbirth education, they get an in-depth series that will build their confidence in the birth process. They also learn nutrition, muscle strengthening, relaxation, breathing, mental tools that help them finish the event, and banishing the 'what ifs' that can lead to anxiety. Seven of the classes cover everything you need to know about staying low risk, stages of labor, comfort measures, delivery and so much more. Three additional classes cover breastfeeding, postpartum, and baby care. You have continuity with the same class members, and frequent practice sessions throughout the series.
Cost: $420 (A $60 deposit is required to hold your spot)
