  • What you have heard about labor and what that means for you
  • The stages and phases of labor
  • Medications and potential interventions
  • Labor coping strategies including breathing, relaxation, massage and position changes
  • 2nd stage of labor - birthing your baby!
  • Bonding with your newborn

  • Creating a list of birthing preferences
  • Community resources
