– Taking care of yourself
– How to communicate with care providers and hospital staff
“There will be plenty of opportunities for you to taste the wonderful selection of Wild Heaven Beers during the event and you’ll go home with a souvenir Wild Heaven Craft Beer glass. Be prepared…this isn’t your typical childbirth class,” the event announcement says. “You will learn a lot and have a great time too!!”
