Leesburg, VA (July 19, 2013) — Inova Loudoun Hospital is offering two new childbirth education classes, Bonding with Baby and Natural Childbirth. Both classes will take place at The Birthing Inn at Inova Loudoun Hospital, 44045 Riverside Parkway, Leesburg.

In the Bonding with Baby class, special attention will be given to mother-infant bonding, as well as the important ways that dads and other caregivers can bond with their babies. Numerous studies show the importance of infant bonding on the physical and emotional health of infants and their mothers. In this class, parents-to-be will discover ways to enhance the bonding experience with their babies in utero, immediately after birth and beyond.  The class will take place on Wednesday, July 31 from 7-9 p.m. and the cost is $40/couple.

Our fun and relaxing Natural Childbirth class is used to inspire couples that birth is a normal and natural process. The most important way to approach birth is with confidence and relaxation. This can be achieved by knowing what to expect and developing the skills to move through labor. The class is a blend of lecture, discussion and relaxation. It is designed for couples interested in natural childbirth options.  The class will take place on Sunday, August 18 from noon – 6 p.m.  The cost is $100/couple.

To register for either or both classes, visit or call (703) 858-6360. Advanced registration is required.
