- Gain the skills and confidence required to help you communicate with providers about your wishes, make informed decisions, and build a supportive birth team
- Examine your previous birth experience(s) in relation to their impact on future birth experiences.
- Identify ways that you can plan for the birth experience that you would like.
Once a Cesarean – always a Cesarean?
It’s not that simple.
This class is recommended for pregnant or non-pregnant couples preparing for another birth after a Caesarean . We encourage both parents to attend but partners are not required to do so.
