Ready for Birth is a six week series for birth preparation.  As we meet each week you and your support person will learn about labor and birth, practice positions and techniques to help cope with labor pain, spend time reflecting on your pregnancy and your baby, and build connections with other expecting parents.  This class is designed for parents who desire a birth with minimal interventions but is appropriate for any birth setting.

Session topics include:

  • Anatomy of Pregnancy

  • Stages of Labor

  • Understanding Pain and Pain Relief

  • Coping Techniques for Labor

  • Interventions and Emergencies

  • Preparing for Postpartum

  • Newborn Care and Feeding

Class Size

In order to maintain the intimacy of the class, space is limited to 7 birthing parents and their support person(s).  Registration is required.


Each six week session costs $150.  Partial scholarships are available to families in need.  Please email the instructors if you need a scholarship. 


The class is free for existing clients of Harbor Community Birth.
