In the morning session of Orientation to the Birth Center, we will review the philosophy of the midwifery model of care, birth center criteria and birth center exclusion criteria.  We will also discuss the support system, available comfort measures, birthing tools, your birth plan, and additional classes.

During the afternoon session of Early Discharge from the Birth Center, we will tour the birth center and review the immediate post-partum period for both mom and baby, the importance of choosing a pediatrician, early discharge, and follow-up care.
