The Family Centered Cesarean Birth is designed for parents who are planning a cesarean birth. We will discuss signs of labor, when to call your doctor, what to expect during the pre-op period, and what happens in the delivery room step-by-step. We focus on making this a gentle, family-centered experience, and will teach you how to minimize discomforts during the surgery and recovery periods. Your support team will learn their role during birth and beyond. We also discuss the postpartum experience, while in the hospital and at home. A tour of the Women's Services Floor is included with the class.
