Trena offers childbirth education for expecting parents to help prepare for the big day. Some courses focus entirely on Lamaze Childbirth Education, others Hypnobirthing and some incorporate the principles of both.
Lamaze Childbirth Education
When people think Lamaze, they often think breathing. In fact, Lamaze childbirth education encompasses that, and so much more! This series uses a variety of teaching methods to provide evidence-based information that promotes Lamaze International’s Six Healthy Birth Practices and is facilitated in a relaxed and fun environment.
Some topics that will be covered include:
- Signs and stages of labor
- Comfort measures
- The benefits and trade-offs of a variety of medical interventions
- Medical Pain relief Options
- Birthing and greeting your baby
- Infant feeding
- Postpartum adjustment
This class includes the use of classroom instruction and demonstration, videos and hands-on practice in a lighthearted environment to help prepare you for birth and your transition into parenting.

Do you want a faster, easier, more enjoyable birthing experience? The Hypnobirthing® Method will teach you relaxation techniques so that you can give your baby a welcome that is calm, gentle, and safe.
HypnoBirthing® Classes are taught in a series of 5 classes, which are 2.5 hours in length, and include a book and CD, discussion, hands-on practice, videos, and take-home material to further the participants understanding and ability to use the method.
