Birth Boot Camp Online Classes Available
Live classes are always recommended as they provide individual attention and group interactions. If your schedules prohibit private or group classes you can attend classes anywhere and anytime using Birth Boot Camp's online option.
COMPREHENSIVE CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION
If you desire an unmedicated birth, are first-time parents, or are preparing for a VBAC, this class will prepare you on all levels – physically, mentally, and emotionally. Online workbook included. This class series runs 25 hours and is typically taught over a 10-week period, or ten 2.5 hour sessions.
BIRTH CENTER & HOME BIRTH CLASS
If you are planning to have your baby at home or at a freestanding birth center, this class will give you the nuts and bolts of labor. Learn what happens before, during, and after birth, as well as variations of labor and birth videos of out-of-hospital births. While comfort measures and relaxation are taught in this class series, the “Comfort Measures: Amazing Coping Strategies for Labor” workshop compliments this childbirth class nicely. Online workbook included. Class time 10 hours, typically broken up into four 2.5 hour sessions.
HOSPITAL BIRTH CLASS
Our hospital class is designed for the couple who wants more. More education. More fun. More relaxation and labor practice. More information on interventions, including medicated and cesarean births. They want to be able to make informed decisions as their birth unfolds. Online workbook included. This class is 15 hours in total, typically taken over six 2.5 hour sessions.

FOOD AND FITNESS: A PROGRAM FOR THE CHILDBEARING YEAR
Being healthy and low-risk will not only help you in the delivery room, but you will feel better during pregnancy, birth, and recover more quickly postpartum. Birth Boot Camp has designed a program especially for you. You will learn the how-tos in class and build a great physical foundation for your pregnancy, birth, and baby. Read the workbook cover to cover, or use it as a reference. Class time approximately 3 hours.
COMFORT MEASURES CLASS
