Baptist Health in Jacksonville, Florida offers a comprehensive curriculum of childbirth classes in various locations and dates in a three week series or an all-day Saturday "marathon" event!
In this comprehensive three-week series, you and your partner will increase your confidence in the birthing process as you gain a better understanding of what to expect during labor and birth. This series includes information on preterm labor, epidurals and other options, the partner's role during labor, what to expect in the hospital, comfort measures in labor, Cesarean birth, postpartum care and basic newborn information. By learning the essentials taught by experienced childbirth educators, you'll be given the tools to help make the best choices for the birth of your baby. Childbirth class is also a great place to meet other expectant parents and share experiences!
Note: some breathing and relaxation is included in this series but you will not practice on the floor. For couples desiring a more in-depth Lamaze-type class, please check out the four week natural childbirth series or the supplemental one-night "comfort measures for labor "class.
