What are childbirth classes?

A childbirth class is a wonderful way to learn more about pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum care and to meet other moms-to-be. It can help you prepare for labor, giving birth, and having a new baby. There is a wide range of different childbirth classes from CPR and labor to postpartum and newborn care. Classes range from weekend courses to 1-2 hour individual classes, from one-day intensive workshop to weekly sessions lasting a month or more. Most hospitals offer childbirth and other classes, or you can take one through an independent instructor or organization.
