  • Relaxation
  • Breathing patterns

  • Pain relief both natural and medical
  • Support person's role
  • Postpartum experience

The class includes a tour of the Bronson Birth Place.  Videos will be shown.

This class should be taken between the 28th and 38th week of pregnancy. We expect that each mom registered will bring a support person with her to class.

Medicaid is accepted and financial aid is available.

*Class content is the same at both the Bronson Battle Creek and Kalamazoo locations.  If you live or work near Battle Creek, or the dates and times work better for you, you may choose to take this class there (even if you plan to deliver your baby at Bronson Kalamazoo).  One exception is the tour during the last hour of the class.  If you choose a prepared childbirth class in Battle Creek, you can still register for a free tour of the Birth Place in Kalamazoo.
