L.A.T.E Prenatal Class
Don’t be late for these classes- they will provide you with the
information you will need to have a rewarding childbirth experience. MDH
offers a 4-Week L.A.T.E class, which meets for four Thursday evenings in 2015.
MDH also offers an 8-Hour Saturday L.A.T.E class.
Join other expectant parents in a class
designed to help women know their birthing options, increase their
confidence in their body's ability to give birth and to help their
partners build the skills needed in their role as her primary support
person. During the classes, your instructor will explain the stages of
labor: Latent, Active, Transition, and Expulsion (L.A.T.E.). They will
incorporate not only breathing and relaxation techniques, but will teach
you various labor positions to help make each phase of labor as
manageable as possible. Our instructors are experienced OB nurses at MDH
with more than 60 years of nursing experience between them. They are
skilled at helping women cope with the challenges of labor, and they
will use humor to make this a fun class for you and your support person.
A tour of the OB Department will be included in this series.
