Childbirth Classes and Education
Having a baby is a life-changing event. To prepare parents for the arrival of a newborn, our nurse educators offer the following classes:
The Lamaze method of childbirth promotes a philosophy of personal empowerment while providing general childbirth education. Our Lamaze childbirth class teaches expectant mothers many ways to work with the labor process to reduce the pain associated with childbirth and promote normal (physiological) birth including the first moments after birth.
Like any new skill, breastfeeding takes knowledge and practice to be successful. Pregnant women who learn how to breastfeed are more likely to be successful than those who do not. Our breastfeeding classes offer pregnant women and their partners the chance to prepare and ask questions before the baby’s arrival.
