We all know the challenge of making it to a series of classes. The YWCA of Asheville is trying to make childbirth classes more accessible to Latina mothers with a one-day Saturday class. This 6-hour class will be taught by a native Spanish speaker and doula entirely in Spanish.

The class will cover key aspects of labor, delivery, and breastfeeding. Information will be provided on topics such as what to expect during stages of pregnancy, preparing for mental and physical changes, stages of labor and delivery, medical and non-medical approaches for comfort and pain management, information about possible medical interventions, what to expect after delivery and breast-feeding basics. There will also be opportunities to practice comfort measures and positions and breathing strategies for labor.

The class has not been scheduled yet because the YWCA wants to ensure they meet the needs of as many women as possible.

Please spread the word and have interested women contact the YWCA at (828) 708-7993.
