With a strong focus on preparing for natural birth, our Lamaze for Labor & Delivery Class is designed to give parents a solid understanding of the natural process of labor and birth.  We practice comfort measures in every class such as labor positions, breathing techniques, massage, visualization and affirmations.  The benefits and risks of medical procedures are fully explored using an evidence-based approach.  Emphasis is placed not on achieving certain birth outcomes (e.g. a natural birth) but on being an active participant in making your health care decisions and working closely with your health care providers to achieve a safe, healthy birth.  

This class is excellent preparation for anyone preparing for hospital birth in Hilo, Waimea, or Kona, and for home birth.  Both moms and dads can expect to leave the class inspired, fascinated, and excited for their upcoming journey of labor, birth, and parenting.

Cost for the class is $150.  Or, when registering by the early bird registration date (1 calendar month before the 1st day of class), save $25 for a total cost of $125.  To register, please contact Sasha by email or phone 808-936-7532 to express your interest, or click here to fill out the Lamaze Class Registration Form and mail it in with your payment (it’s a good idea to check first and make sure there’s space).
