Better Birth Childbirth Education classes designed and taught by Paula & Nate Wilson - Ever since taking their first Bradley Childbirth class in 1990, Paula and Nate have been interested in learning all they can about childbirth and sharing ways to make birth more comfortable, less expensive, less scary, and more safe. In eight 2-hour classes we help couples get a feel for the normal process of birth, how to cope with the things that are challenging, what health care options are available throughout the process, how to make informed decisions as consumers of health care, and how the husband can be a stragetic partner throughout the process. Contact us for details on the next class offerings!
