What You'll Learn

In this interactive workshop, you and your partner will learn techniques to help you stay comfortable during labor, whether you're planning a medicated or unmedicated birth. The class fee includes your own birth ball to take home.

To get the most out of this class, it's strongly recommended that you take one of the following Cedars-Sinai Childbirth Series classes first, so you have a basic understanding of the labor process, birth and recovery:

This interactive workshop focuses on:

  • Learning and practicing breathing techniques
  • Massage
  • Positioning
  • Aromatherapy
  • Other soothing relaxation tools
