About the Consult

This consultation is an opportunity for you to explore your questions surrounding labor, learn about the labor process, and learn about labor positioning that can assist you in achieving your labor goals. Childbirth and labor prep is geared towards your exact needs. We will discuss cesarean deliveries and can walk through the experience of giving birth in the operating room, as well as review vaginal inductions. We'll speak with you about how to build your confidence as it relates to your communication strategies surrounding your birth experience, and how to effectively practice self-advocacy.
