So You're Having a Baby: A Complete Birth Class

  • 285 South 68th Street Place #214 Lincoln, NE, 68510 United States (map)


Ideal for new parents, our all-inclusive classes guide expecting parents through the joys and challenges of pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period. This is much more than a simple guide to hospital procedures or an intro to the latest birth trends - you will engage with the information and tools you need to make decisions about coping with labor, medical intervention, and recovery, and have fun while learning the best ways to care for your bundle of joy before and after birth!

All mothers, whether expecting natural, epidural or cesarean births, are welcome and will gain so much from these classes - they've been created to help every new parent make the best decisions for their unique situation, whatever that might be!

Meeting conveniently at Southeast Community College in Lincoln, we offer this class one night a week for 6 consecutive weeks.

Classes cover:

  • Signs & stages of labor
  • Natural comfort techniques
  • Labor and birth positions
  • Options for medicinal pain relief
  • Common interventions 
  • Informed consent
  • What to expect postpartum
  • Breastfeeding
  • Understanding your newborn
