AnMed Health helps you prepare for your new addition with classes and support. You can rely on AnMed Health Women's and Children's Hospital to offer up-to-date and helpful classes to help you prepare.
Saturday sessions offer a good overview of what the weekly classes offer, in less time. This two-day class meets from 9 a.m. until noon for two consecutive Saturday mornings.
These classes help participants better understand:
• Signs and stages of labor
• Natural relaxation and comfort techniques
• The support person's role during labor
• Pain relief options
• Common interventions in labor and delivery
• Caesarean birth
• Postpartum Care
• Early Infant Care
Registration should occur by the fifth month of pregnancy to help ensure your preferred session. Classes should be completed four to six weeks before your due date.
An optional relaxation exercise is encouraged and offered during the last 30 minutes of both classes. If you would like to participate, you will need to bring several pillows and a blanket or mat to use for relaxation on the floor.
2012 class dates are subject to change.
$65 per couple. Please register the mom only, for 1 seat. One support person encouraged to attend with expectant mom at no additional charge. No children in class, please.
