Are you having a hard time finding a childbirth class schedule that works for you? 

This online childbirth course is ideal for those whose schedules don't allow for attending a weekly group session. It gives you the flexibility to watch and learn whenever and whenever it works for you.  Build your own program based on your needs with a la carte offerings including 1:1 instruction!  You get the best of both worlds!

You will learn what happens at every stage of the labor and birth process. The more you know about how your body changes and what to expect next, the more calm and  capable you will feel about giving birth.

For over 25 years, Customized Communications, Inc. (CCI) has worked closely with hospitals and health care providers nationwide to provide patient-friendly educational materals covering every stage of pregnancy, birth and baby care.

I have researched many books and resources over the past 10 years as a childbirth educator, and I love CCI's books and recorded classes.  Your Labor and Birth book has been my preferred resource for 6 years now.  It covers the most relevant information in an easy to understand format that includes beautiful photos, tables and short videos on important topics.  This is a great addition to this online course and includes chapters on pregnancy, labor and birth, postpartum, newborn care and breastfeeding.
