Event description

Description

You can approach your child's birth with more confidence when you know what to expect during labor, delivery and recovery and during your hospital stay. Whether you're delivering your first child or fifth, childbirth classes can help you prepare to meet the challenges of labor and delivery.

Childbirth Classes are held once a month on Saturday for the convenience of our patients. They will begin around 8 am and end around 3 pm with a tour of the facility. The class will be in Conference Rooms C & D. We will have signs directing you where to go upon arrival.

We will discuss things you never knew about labor, delivery and postpartum care. You'll find out how to identify the signs of labor and what happens to your body as your baby makes his or her way into the world. Address your fears. Connect with your partner or labor coach. Discuss options for handling pain. Get the basics on medical interventions and possible complications. Brush up on newborn care. We encourage you to bring your support person to class but this is not mandatory.

These classes are open to anyone as a service to our community provided by Merit Health River Region Hospital. We will have water and Danishes for snack in the morning. You will also be given a card that you may use in our cafeteria for lunch.
