Childbirth Class

*Please note that we are currenlty offering online ZOOM childbirth classes.  Please contact us for more information. 

It’s normal to have questions about your pregnancy, labor and delivery, and the postpartum period. We would be happy to have you join us for one of our one-day Childbirth Class to help answer your questions. The classes are taught by the NLMCH labor and delivery nurses giving you the most up to date information and options for your own labor and delivery.

Some of the topics we will discuss include:

  • Understanding the third trimester of pregnancy

  • Understanding labor, including when to call the hospital

  • Ways to manage discomfort during labor

  • How your spouse, partner, or support person can help

  • Medical interventions, including family centered C-sections

  • Postpartum care for mom

  • Newborn care

  • Tour of the NLMCH Labor & Delivery/Postpartum Unit

As we cover the various topics, we will watch a couple of brief videos, discuss the many options to personalize your experience in the hospital setting, and try some “hands on” exercises to better understand labor, delivery, and the postpartum period.

The class is free and is open to any expectant parents, regardless of where you plan to deliver. Please call 664-5464 to register for a class.
