If you are considering having an epidural, you must attend an Epidural Education class. If you are in labor, an epidural will not be placed if an Epidural Education class has not been completed.

Class covers benefits, risks and complications of labor epidurals.

Caring for a new baby, especially for first-time mothers, can be overwhelming. Not only is your body going through physical changes, but also you will experience emotional changes. Preparation and education is key to having a successful, happy pregnancy, delivery and postpartum period.

SGMC provides educational classes for expectant parents and caregivers. Classes are provided as a community service for the expectant parents in the area who plan to deliver their baby at SGMC. Program presenters are SGMC Birthplace professional staff.

Children are not permitted in classes. Dads are encouraged to attend all classes whenever possible. Dads do not have to register separately.
