CHILDBIRTH & BREASTFEEDING CLASSES

The experts at the Family Birth Center are to help you prepare for your big day and the days that follow. The Prepared Childbirth Class is a basic overview of the labor and delivery process. This class is meant to prepare the mother and support person about topics such as late pregnancy, labor, birth, options for pain management, medical procedures, cesarean birth, and more.

The Breastfeeding Class is designed for expectant mothers, fathers, and/or support persons. This class includes basic breastfeeding information and techniques and prevention of common problems.

We suggest registering by the 5th month of pregnancy for both classes.
