Lamaze® Childbirth Education at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC - Hamot Campus


This class will prepare you for a childbirth experience with the goal of less medical intervention. You will learn Lamaze® labor and birth practices including extensive breathing and relaxation techniques, which support your personal wishes for your baby's birth. The program includes all of the information in our Childbirth Education series, but allows more time for additional practice of labor comfort strategies, partner support, and in-depth discussion about working with the natural process of labor. The class includes a tour of the UPMC Hamot Women's Hospital. Our Lamaze® class is offered over 2 Saturday classes, totaling 12 hours of instruction with a certified Lamaze® instructor.

Cost: $65.00 per couple
