The "Programs for Parents" series of childbirth education classes give both partners the opportunity to learn about the details of giving birth and to share their joys and concerns with other expectant parents. Instructors from the Family Birth Center can shed light on the changes that occur throughout pregnancy and can prepare you for childbirth and what to expect once the baby arrives.
