Childbirth Education Classes
Pregnancy is a joyous, exciting and sometimes uncertain journey. Education, knowledgeable doctors and staff, and a caring atmosphere close to home can make all the difference.
Each month, our prenatal education team will meet with expectant parents to go over all aspects of childbirth. Our courses cover a variety of topics, including childbirth preparation, breastfeeding classes and natural childbirth.
We ask all expectant parents to attend childbirth education classes at about 28 weeks of pregnancy. Classes are free; however, class sizes are limited. Advance registration is required.
