Childbirth Workshop for Couples

At nine, we aim to help you gain confidence in becoming parents. We prepare you for labor and birth and caring for your baby. Knowing in advance what your options are makes a big difference! Our childbirth educators will provide you up-to-date information and practical tips to make your experience enjoyable and memorable.

At NINE we offer a comprehensive 2 day course that covers everything you need to know about labor, birth and babies. The course is for couples and we recommend that you attend any time from 28 weeks onwards. The course consists of 8 sessions held over 2 consecutive Saturdays, 4 x 1 hour sessions each day.

We strongly recommend you complete all your prenatal classes before 36 weeks. Registering well ahead of time also helps ensure we can get you into a series with other expectant parents who are due around the same time as you.

Private Couple Session - 3 Hours

Some couples prefer to have a private session rather than attending within a group setting. Our private couple class covers the 4 sessions of DAY 1 Labor & Birth. Although we cover basic information on the first days with your baby and breastfeeding, the focus of the class is on preparing for childbirth. We recommend the Post Natal Home Care Package if you choose to do a private session.
