When should you take a Prenatal Childbirth Class?

It is most recommended to take a Prenatal Childbirth Class with Bean Family Wellness between 27-32 weeks pregnant. However, you can take a class prior to that, or anytime before you give birth. It can be helpful to take the class during this time to help you and your partner feel more prepared for birth, it gives you time to practice some of the techniques and comfort measures that we cover in class, plus it gives you time to do more research about your options and discuss it with your partner and care provider.
