You will receive small "goodie bag" of items you need for some of the activities. Register as soon as possible so you will receive the "goodie bag."
Option 2: Private, customized class
Sign up below and the focus and time/dates will be discussed
When you first discovered you were pregnant, I know you never envisioned how our world would change by the end of your pregnancy. The common events of late pregnancy such as taking a childbirth class, having a celebration/baby shower or even something as small as dashing to grocery store for a craving are no longer the normal events. Who could have imagined that you would be working from home or unemployed or your job would be listed as "essential" and you would be worried about your exposure to this virus.
So I am offering this childbirth express class especially for you. I think it is still important to be connected with other pregnant people and work with your labor support partner. It's helpful to filter all that information that is overwhelming online whether it's about what's vital to have in your labor bag, how can you stay home as long as possible in early labor, what your options are in regards to pain relief, partner support strategies or how to confidently breastfeed your baby in the first hour.
I am an active childbirth educator at Island Hospital. I have also taught at Skagit Valley Hospital and Cascade Valley Hospital. Island Hospital is offering Tuesday night online classes and will accept payment with a Apple Health card.
This will be a "flipped classroom experience" so I will provide you with things to do outside of our time together.
