From the earliest stages of your pregnancy, we provide you with the best experience possible as you prepare for a new family member. We offer educational programs to help you and your family through your journey to childbirth. All classes are taught by qualified and experienced instructors in an informal classroom setting that encourages participation.
We recommend childbirth classes for all first-time parents and strongly encourage veteran parents to attend refresher courses. We cover the entire childbirth process, provide a tour of the Women's Center and teach relaxation and breathing techniques.
Just because nursing is natural doesn't mean it’s easy. During the breastfeeding portion of the class, a lactation consultant will prepare you for breastfeeding by discussing comfortable feeding positions, what a proper latch is and how to know if your baby is getting enough breast milk.
