Understanding Birth eClass
3700 South Main St Blacksburg, VA 24060
The Understanding Birth eClass is ideal for those expectant parents who can’t attend an on-site childbirth class due to work schedules, time constraints, or medical conditions. The eight-chapter program is an interactive, web-based class that uses videos, personal birth stories, animations, activities, and games to teach all the essential information parents need to know to prepare for their birth.
Our online childbirth class will help you:
The eClass fee includes a free Labor Support Workshop session, which offers hands-on practice of many of the comfort techniques taught in the class. You can register for this session at the same time as the eClass, but should complete the eClass before attending the Workshop.
