Imagine taking a childbirth class in the comfort of your own home. This option is perfect for moms-to-be who are on bed rest, couples with time or scheduling conflicts, or parents in need of a refresher course.

About the tutorial

Our comprehensive, interactive tutorial walks you through the three stages of labor and provides details on pain management options and comfort measures to optimize your birthing experience. It includes:

  • Numerous video segments and illustrations that let you know what to expect before, during and after labor. You will have access for a 12-week period, beginning from the date of your initial use.
  • Access to a UC San Diego childbirth educator as questions arise
  • Option to attend in-person Childbirth Basics class at no additional charge
