Prepared Childbirth / Lamaze Class

Childbirth classes cover all aspects of the later part of pregnancy, labor, delivery and the post-delivery period. Instruction includes: the general principles of relaxation; the support person’s role as a coach; focusing and breathing techniques; medications and anesthesia; and comfort measures to be used during labor.

All instructors are Certified Childbirth Educators.

Our classes are offered at a variety of times in the evening and on weekends for your convenience. Our weekday sessions are 2.5 hours in the evening and occur over a 4 week period. Our Weekend Session is one 8 hour class held on a weekend day. Please check our events calendar for upcoming dates or call 732-745-8579 for more information. Your physician’s permission is required to participate in the exercise portion of class. Prepared childbirth classes should be taken during the last two months of pregnancy, but early registration is absolutely necessary as classes fill up quickly.
