3/19/20: We are temporarily cancelling all Perinatal Education classes and Family Birth Center tours currently through the month of April. This decision is in line with precautions advised by the Centers for Disease Control to limit possible transmission of COVID 19 and to keep our campuses safe for our patients and staff. Mayo Clinic has taken a lot of precautions, and it is safe for patients to attend their Mayo Clinic appointments. We are reaching out to individuals currently registered for April offerings. Our apologies for this temporary inconvenience. Please call 507-266-7473 with any questions. Please note: We are still accepting registrations for the month of May and beyond.

Comfort Strategies for Labor Class

Want to learn about non-medication based comfort strategies to use during labor - both at home and once you arrive at the birth center? This one night class will introduce you to many techniques you can use to cope with labor and continue to use in life. A combination of discussion, demonstration and practice will be applied. Experienced registered nurses will facilitate this session.

This class is not designed to be a first time birth preparation class only, but could be used as a supplement for you to learn and practice more comfort strategies.

This one session class is a great option for parents who have had a baby previously and would like a review of comfort techniques.

Topics include:

  • Breathing and Relaxation
  • Positioning
  • Basic Massage
  • Birth Ball
  • Techniques for Back Labor

It is highly recommended that a Family Birth Center Tour be taken prior to this class. (Please register for a Tour date separately).

All registered participants will receive a confirmation email within one hour after registering (be sure to check your e-mail junk folder if you don't see the e-mail in your inbox). Please contact us immediately (phone: 507/266-7473 or email: if you do not receive an email.
