Prepared Childbirth

Please note: Classes are designed for our adult patients, and unfortunately we are not able to accommodate children in classes at this time. Thank you for your understanding by leaving your children in the care of family or friends while you attend your class.

 

We need your help to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all our patients and visitors to our medical center. Please note that you and/or your partner will not be permitted to remain in the tour/class if you are ill or have recently been exposed to a communicable illness such as chickenpox, mumps, measles, upper respiratory infection/cold, flu, diarrhea, etc. We appreciate your understanding a cooperation with this process.

 

This 3-4 week class (9 total hours) is designed for expectant parents in their last 3 months of pregnancy. This course covers female anatomy, warning signs, pre-labor signs, signs of labor, phases of labor, timing contractions, comfort measures and breathing techniques for labor. The class will also discuss relaxation exercises, birthing options, pain management, cesarean deliveries as well as your partner's role, postpartum care, and newborn appearance and procedures. Adults only please; we are unable to accommodate children in classes.

Things To Bring: Bring the following to every class (EXCEPT classes taught by Betty, bring following to your 2nd and 4th class ONLY):

  • 2 standard "bedroom" pillows.
  • 2 pencils or pens.
  • Something to put on the floor like a beach towel, exercise mat or small blanket.
  • Please bring a focal point: a small, portable item such as a stuffed animal, postcard, etc. This item will help you to focus your attention during breathing exercises.
  • Wear comfortable pants/shorts and flat shoes/slippers for floor exercises.
  • Water and snack/meal for break time.
Enrollment for classes is ONLY available using a desktop computer. At this moment mobile and tablet device enrollments are not coming through. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope for your understanding.
