Prenatal Education

Parenting Is the Ultimate Learning Experience

Just as parenting is sure to go beyond anything you’ve ever experienced, our approach to your care goes beyond appointments and scheduled procedures. We provide resources for women and their partners or support people to prepare for the major lifestyle change just around the bend. If you are at least 20 weeks along, now is the time to register for courses in childbirth, breastfeeding, infant CPR and safety, and more. Call 1.888.611.4462 or register online.

Courses

  • Childbirth Preparation – Learn to read your body’s cues about when to head to the hospital, plus practice relaxation techniques and breathing methods, receive labor support tips and medication options, tour the Birthing Center and ask any questions you might have.

  • Baby Care – Learn the basics: bathing, feeding, home & car seat safety, milestones to look out for in preparation for doctor visits. Get expert advice on sleeping patterns, tips to soothe your infant and methods for keeping him or her safe, including the correct way to perform CPR and The Heimlich Maneuver on infants.

  • Breastfeeding – Breastfeeding gives your baby the best start in life, meeting all of his/her nutritional needs and then some. But where do you start? In this class, a nurse or a lactation consultant will guide you through the process of breastfeeding, providing tips, support and resources for troubleshooting common problems.
