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.

PRE-ADMISSION REGISTRATION

Thank you for choosing Jackson Hospital for your healthcare. Even before you arrive, our staff is preparing for your visit and we hope that your stay will be as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

Please bring your insurance card and current photo ID with you when you check in. Please note that some insurance policies will not pay for elective surgical procedures due to policy waiting periods or other limitations. It is always best to verify your coverage with your insurance provider prior to any scheduled hospitalization.

We will bill your insurance for payment. But please note that any charges not covered by insurance, including insurance deductible co-pay and private room fees, are due upon admission. If you do not have insurance coverage, you must make arrangements with our patient account representatives prior to admission.

We look forward to caring for you. If you have any questions, please call our pre-admitting office at 334.293.8600, option 3.
