Your due date may be approaching soon! When you’re 6-8 weeks before your actual due date, we recommend you and your partner register for this recurring series where you’ll learn about labor and childbirth. You’ll experience relaxation and breathing techniques to help you through labor positioning, as well as comfort measures. We’ll also discuss pain medication options and anesthesia, types of births, and show you around the Labor and Delivery and Mother/Baby units at Stamford Hospital. Please wear comfortable clothes, and bring two pillows and a watch that measures time in seconds. Water and light refreshments will be served.
