A movie about childbirth is shown, and tours of the Family Birth Center are given. The program includes the Epidural Class for women who are considering using epidural anesthesia during labor. (If registering for this class, we strongly recommend also taking the Caring for Your Newborn Class.) Participants should bring two pillows and a blanket, dress comfortably and attend with the person who will be supporting them during labor.
