Childbirth Educators describe their classes for you...

 The Birth Center strongly recommends that a mother and her partner take a high quality, independent birthing class. Its sessions will will help prepare a mother and her partner with knowledge about pregnancy, comfort techniques, tools for labor, information about natural responses to labor, and caring for a new baby.  There are many types of classes and the type you choose is personal and may include the teacher’s personality, the techniques used, when and where the class is taught and the cost of the class.  You should make choices early, by about your 20th week of pregnancy, to assure that you have time to complete the series and the teacher has space for you in his/her classes. Classes offered in our facility by independent instructors in addition to other Salt Lake City resources are listed here:  http://www.utahbirthcenter.com/childbirth-education/

We asked local Salt Lake City instructors to come and describe their classes to us.  We hope their answers will aid in your decision making for which class is best for you.
