Content includes what to expect during labor, comfort strategies for coping with labor including medications and epidurals, and guidance for making informed decisions about medical procedures. Facilitated by the instructor, your labor partner will help you identify and practice coping preferences and techniques. A guided tour of the maternity unit is included.
