Accelerated classes meet in three two-hour sessions and are a greatoption for couples who can’t commit to a four-week course. They incorporate the 6 Healthy Birth Practices and hands-on practice with techniques for supporting the laboring mother. We discuss the physical and emotional signposts of labor and how to cope with them, as well as the variations that may occur in labor and how to address them with non-medical techniques. We cover your wishes for your own birth, and what additional tools--like hiring a doula or making a birth plan--may help you achieve the birth you want. Register online at www.thehealthybirth.com.
