Maine Families

Birthing Support

Childbirth Classes

Birthing Basics: 255-0481
Free 3-hour class for expecting parents covering labor and delivery, comfort techniques, pain relief options, and much more.  Class sizes are small so they can be tailored to the needs of the attendees and allow time for discussion. Register early to reserve your space.  Classes are usually held in our meeting space at the Maine Families building (the big barn at the corner of Court Street and Broadway in Machias).  Some classes are being held virtually for the time being.
