Childbirth Preparation & Education

For most pregnant women, even if you already have a child, labor and birth process can be both overwhelming and joyful. Many women and their partners choose to attend childbirth classes to gather information and prepare for childbirth. There are several options when choosing a childbirth education class or workshop. See below for options offered in the Treasure Valley.
