We know there are a great many unknowns for families preparing to welcome an infant. Porter has created a series of childbirth education classes designed to prepare the entire family for this extraordinary event. Our goal is to help you feel ready for all aspects of birth, from knowing when to leave for the hospital. what to expect during your stay, and how to take care of yourself and your baby. Information on natural coping methods, such as relaxation and breathing, as well as information about pain medication, and epidural anesthesia will be presented.
