Labor and Pain Management

This single class covers one of the most feared aspects of having a baby – the pain associated with labor and delivery. Learn what to expect during all stages of labor and how to cope with the pain whether you are having a natural childbirth or plan to use pain interventions. You will learn breathing strategies, birth ball and stretching exercises and how to prepare your body for labor and delivery. You will also learn some relaxation strategies. This class is intended for mom to take with her labor partner. Dress comfortably and be ready to do various exercises.

Gearing Up!

The baby industry makes billions each year selling items that you may only use a few times or not at all. So, what’s worth the investment? This single class covers what you need to have as you bring your baby home from the hospital, from the absolute essentials to what you shouldn’t waste money on and the things that are considered no longer safe, even if they are still on the market. Learn what is safe to buy used or borrow versus what should be a new purchase. We will cover keeping up with product recalls, safety guidelines, product expirations and how to determine if something is a good buy.

All classes are held in the Childbirth Center Classroom on the fifth floor of San Juan Regional Medical Center. For a full list of all the current classes offered FREE to our expecting parents as a community benefit, visit
