You will learn ways to help manage labor pain naturally as well as various labor and birth positions that will help you labor and deliver in a way that is more comfortable for you and baby.

You’re finally pregnant! Whether you have been trying for years, or got lucky on the first try…..this is typically a time of excitement!
