I am aware of Birthmark but are there other group childbirth classes in Philly starting up soon? I have a friend who is due in June and would like to start a class ASAP. Any suggestions?<br><br>
Hospital classes aren't off-limit if you think they'd be appropriate for someone trying a natural birth. BUT, the preference is out-of-hospital cbe classes.<br><br>
Any suggestions are welcome!

Here is a link to my <a href="http://www.delcodoula.com/local-resources.html" target="_blank">website</a> where under 'local resources', I've listed some private CBE classes in the area that I know of. She'd have to contact them about when they start, though.

Yoga Child on South Street. I didn't do the workshops (but know many happy participants). I really enjoyed the prenatal yoga program and it was essential for me to have a natural delivery.<br><a href="http://www.yogachild.net/prenatalworkshopsbirthprep.html" target="_blank">http://www.yogachild.net/prenatalwor...birthprep.html</a><br><br>
I took the one-day class at Pennsy. It depends on who your instructor is, but the LC who lead ours certainly scared me and my husband away from any interventions!

The <a href="http://www.maternalwellness.org/index.php/programs_and_services/childbirth_education/" target="_blank">Maternal Wellness Center</a> in Mt Airy is where I took my birth class. We did an 8week Birth Works class (I think it was 2-3 hours for 8 weeks!) it was AWESOME
