Comprehensive in depth course that covers pregnancy, labor, birth, postpartum care, breastfeeding and newborn care. Please sign up early to ensure availability! It is recommended the first date of class takes place no later than 34 weeks of pregnancy. Most recommendations you may see are that the first class should be no earlier than 27 weeks of pregnancy BUT I assure you even if you decide to take the Childbirth & Beyond 4 Week series earlier in your pregnancy, Birth Guidance classes are memorable and you don't go home empty handed! That is what makes a Birth Guidance class unique! Having a workbook to keep as well as access to the online student portal ensures you will not forget what you learned in class regardless of how early you decided to take this series!
