What's the difference between Birthing Baby Childbirth Class and the Labor Skills Workshop?

Labor Skills and Techniques is recommended as a refresher course or to provide the hands-on training for what you have been reading in birth books. The Labor Skills Class is a one day workshop that covers all the labor skills covered as part of Birthing Baby Childbirth Education Class. However, unlike Birthing Baby Childbirth Education Course, Labor Skills does not cover topics such as baby care, postpartum care or breastfeeding.

Labor Skills Workshop is perfect for those that would like to learn the tools needed to birth but do not need a full childbirth education course, such as mothers that have already given birth before.

"I entered the class not knowing what to expect in labor and whether I'd be able to do a natural birth. I ended the class fully confident and excited to birth my baby!" - Stephanie
