The Birth Fusion Childbirth Education Series is a comprehensive 5-class series, including childbirth classes, a baby care class, and a breastfeeding class. The childbirth classes are held on Sundays at Pence Gallery from noon-4:30pm. We devote 3 Sundays to covering all aspects of childbirth including anatomy and physiology of childbirth, preparing for the delicate 2 week post partum period, common medical interventions and medical pain relief options, and lastly, comfort measures and labor support techniques for the birth partner. We spend time discussing how our perception of pain can affect our labor experience. We also practice breathing and relaxation and walk through labor simulation to build familiarity with what comfort measures will be useful at what times in your labor.

The series continues with the Baby Care and Breastfeeding classes, held on 2 separate week nights at Mother & Baby Source from 6:30-9pm. These shorter classes will focus on all the questions you have about baby care and breastfeeding. They are less structured and try to cater to the questions and concerns of the group. We are lucky to have a Sutter Davis pediatrician visit our baby care class to answer your medical questions, including vaccinations.

Classes are designed to be taken all in one series, but we recognize that different couples have different needs and may need to mix and match to find the class series that meets their busy schedules. Look for the à la carte class options to put together a class series with dates that work for you, or choose the entire series as it’s scheduled. It’s up to you. You may also be interested in only one portion of the class series, such as the childbirth birth portion. You have the option to register and pay for only that portion of the series. We recommend the entire series for all first time families. We also offer the 3rd childbirth class as a stand-alone class for repeat families wanting a refresher. This class is perfect for those families.

The fee for the complete childbirth class series is $240. We recommend taking a class series that will end 1-2 months before your due date.
