Preparing for an Out of Hospital Birth | $129

The decision to have a planned home or birth center birth, to step outside the standard maternity care system, changes the course of pregnancy and birth in powerful ways and often involves a great deal of information gathering and personal reflection. Each woman has a unique approach to preparing for her home birth  One size does not fit all. Giving birth outside of the hospital allows you to labor and deliver in familiar and comfortable surroundings. You'll have more control over your birth experience than you would in a hospital, and you won't have to experience routine medical interventions. You will need to be committed to giving birth without medication, preparing your home for the birth (including getting whatever supplies your caregiver recommends), and making plans to ensure that you have good support available to you in the days after you give birth. Because you are giving birth in your own home or a birth center, planning for comfort and support can be less complex than planning to give birth in the hospital. Chances are you've already discussed the logistics of home / birth center birth with your midwife. As you get closer to your due date, there are things you will need to consider to get ready for the big day. Who will cook? Who will watch your other children? Who will be present? This class is designed to help the women and their partners think about what they specifically needed to feel safe and comfortable at home or at a birth center as they plan their birth.
