Cesarean Birth Preparation

Maternity & Parenting Classes Mountain View
This class is designed to prepare couples for a cesarean birth. A cesarean section birth, also known as a c-section, is the surgical delivery of a baby through an incision in the abdomen and the uterus. This class will introduce you and your support partner to what is involved in this surgical procedure, prepare couples for what to expect, and covers postoperative recovery. A hospital anesthesiologist will also present and discuss anesthesia options for cesarean births. A video presentation and discussion sessions with our registered nurse instructor will aid couples in educating themselves on cesarean birth. Ample time is allowed for questions and answers.

$50/couple - includes handouts

This class is recommended for both parents. Pre-registration is required.
