The Cesarean Option

This class has transitioned to a virtual live conference platform until further notice as we continue to evaluate and manage the health and safety of our patients and visitors.

What You'll Learn

Are you a healthy mom-to-be considering an elective cesarean birth? This free class provides the facts you need to make an informed choice. If you're an expectant mother having a cesarean birth for medical reasons, you may attend the Cesarean Birth class instead.

During this free class, we'll discuss:

  • Pros and cons of cesarean birth
  • Birth and recovery processes for both vaginal and cesarean birth

When to Take the Class

We recommend that you register for classes in your 5th month of pregnancy and attend them during your 7th or 8th month.
