Relaxation and More

This informative class is recommended as a follow-up to childbirth classes. It focuses on relaxation techniques designed to help prepare each expectant mother mentally, emotionally and physically for labor. Expectant mothers and their partners discuss and practice comfort measures-including massage and touch therapy, breathing exercises and coach/mother communication skills-in an intimate, casual setting. Because each labor and delivery is unique, partners learn a “whole body” approach to the childbirth experience.

Relaxation and More is a three-hour class that strongly supports a natural delivery and is ideal for those seeking an alternative to traditional childbirth. However, the class is also extremely beneficial to parents anticipating an epidural or other form of pain management.

Participants need to allow adequate time to take the class and then practice the skills learned prior to the onset of labor. Early registration is encouraged. Tours are not included with this class, but can be scheduled separately.

All childbirth classes are free of charge for those delivering at The Birthplace of Lutheran Children’s Hospital. Visit the Calendar of Events for a complete list of upcoming childbirth classes. Register for classes online or call (260) 435-7338.
