Childbirth

Through a series of classes, our certified childbirth educators will help prepare you for labor, birth and early parenthood. Class topics include:

  • Comfort measures for labor and birth
  • Lamaze breathing techniques
  • Relaxation methods
  • Breathing, relaxation and positioning
  • Cesarean birth
  • Video presentations
  • Postpartum care
  • Guided tour of the Birth & Women's Center

Each series of classes is limited on space. It is recommended you complete the series at least four weeks before your due date.

We offer this series of classes:

  • One evening a week for three weeks (times vary) OR
  • One Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (The Saturday course is a condensed version of the weeknight course for those with busy schedules. Participants in the Saturday course will receive a supplemental online curriculum to enhance learning.)
  • Online course also available upon request for those on bed rest or for those who participate via long distance learning. The online course comes with one-time complimentary session with a certified childbirth educator.
