When should I take this prenatal class?
Around 28-31 weeks of pregnancy is ideal. You can take it earlier if you want more time to practice comfort measures. (You may want to consider getting 6 months access to the videos if you take it on the earlier side and want access to the newborn care videos after your baby is born.) Taking the class later will mean the information will be fresher but we never know if baby will arrive before the final class.
How many classes are there?
There are prerecorded videos to watch every week before we meet. They are in manageable pieces and you can rewatch them as long as you have access.
There are 6 live virtual classes and they vary in length.
Class 1: 2 hours
Class 2-5: 1 hour
Class 6: 2 hours
Which childbirth class should I take?
The Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class is for people who want to go deeper into their preparation for childbirth, postpartum and newborn care. More tools and techniques are taught in the EBB childbirth class and we cover more information surrounding interventions. If you want something quicker, check out our other prenatal class.
