Childbirth Education Classes with Penny Simkin, PT
A 7 week series for those who are planning to give birth outside the hospital (home or birth center), taught at Center for Birth by Penny Simkin. We recommend a class that ends 2-5 weeks before your due date. Penny's childbirth classes fill quickly and early - we highly recommend you reserve your place in as early as possible.
