The classes are taught by an experienced member of the ALMH obstetrics team and include in-depth explanations of birthing options, including cesarean delivery, induction of labor and medications. Partners will also learn about how to support mothers on the big day. Attending the class together and gathering information often helps lessen anxiety for the much-anticipated birth of a child.
