Event description

Description

Whether you are expecting your first child or are looking for a refresher course, our Childbirth and Baby Basics Class will help you and your support person prepare for your baby’s’ birth and know what to expect – both physically and emotionally – on delivery day.

This class uses lectures, discussion, videos, posters and hands-on practice to increase your knowledge and decrease anxiety that you may be feeling about the birthing process. Topics include the signs and stages of labor, relaxation and coping techniques, warning signs to watch for during pregnancy, medical interventions, Cesarean birth and the care of your newborn during the first two weeks of life, from infant safety and sleep to diapering and bathing. Both natural birth and pain-management options will be discussed, and a member of our anesthesiology team will attend classes as available to provide greater detail about epidurals. Our support-team section of the class will cover a partner's role in both the labor process and the care of your baby.

A tour of the Family Birth Place will be available after class pending availability of a room on the unit.

Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Cost is $50 per couple. Only one registration is needed per couple. The classes fill up quickly so please register early.

To see our list of available dates and choose your preferred class, please see the blue box labeled "Select a Date" at the very top of this page.

This class meets in Suite 3. When standing in front of the Family Birth Place entrance, you will see white trailers to the left. Suite 3 is the farthest trailer (facing the road) and has a large wheelchair ramp.

Please wear clothing comfortable for light activity.

Snacks and drinks are welcome. A one-hour lunch break will be given. Lunch is not provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own lunch, eat in the cafeteria or try one of our nearby restaurants.

If you’re going to miss a class and would like to request a refund or transfer to another class date, please call 278-3545 on or before the day of the missed class.
