It is highly recommended that couples take a childbirth prep class prior to taking Comfort Measures as the class does not cover theoretical topics such as stages of labor or typical hospital protocols. Couples who are expecting their second or subsequent child may find this a useful class, especially if they are unable to attend our Childbirth Prep Refresher class.

Please note: due to the intimate nature of childbirth classes, children are not permitted to attend.
