Birth-related Information

Childbirth Education – Three of the most popular certifying agencies for natural childbirth education in the United States are CAPPA, Lamaze®, and the Bradley Method®.  Many childbirth classes that are not affiliated with these organizations are nonetheless influenced by their teachings.  Before choosing a method, we encourage you to research them.  Their official websites are good places to start.  There are other methods and organizations available as well, but I am less familiar with them.  Whichever you choose, I recommend you make sure you do your homework and talk to your instructor to make sure you’re a good match!
