Y offers childbirth education class
TROY — The Miami County YMCA, Robinson Branch, will be offering a seven-week natural childbirth educational class. This class is designed to empower families with the tools and techniques used for natural childbirth, and will be taught using a variety of lectures, videos, and hands on material to help prepare parents for their new arrival.
This course will inform participants on the choices they have throughout the delivery process and helps parents to prepare their own birth plan. Topics covered will include preparing for labor, first stage of labor, delivery and labor support, hospital procedures and pain medications, variations of labor, medical interventions, and cesarean birth, as well as newborn care and postpartum adjustments.
The childbirth classes will meet on following Thursdays, from 7:-8:30 p.m. Classes begin Aug. 30.
