The IGO Medical obstetricians encourage all expectant couples to participate in a prepared childbirth class during their pregnancy, to educate them on the labor and delivery process, and to arm them with helpful tips and tools to maximize comfort. Classes teach all of the childbirth preparation basics and provide informational handouts for each couple. Couples will learn effective ways to reduce stress and increase comfort during labor.
