Childbirth Crash Course: Around the holidays, it can be a challenge to fit in a class or even find a series offered. This class will cover the basics–stages of labor, comfort tips, and as much as I can cram in 2.5 hours. Great refresher course or last minute childbirth class. December 3 at 9:30am. 50.00/couple.
