Bringing a healthy baby into the world is easier, less stressful and more enjoyable when you and your loved ones know what to expect. We recommend the following schedule of classes for first time parents.
- Take the early pregnancy class, Great Expectations, as soon as you discover you are pregnant.
- Schedule a Baby & You Orientation Tour to learn your way around our hospital.
- Special Delivery; After Baby Comes: Baby Care and Parent Care; and Breastfeeding Basics. These classes will prepare you for labor, birth, and how to care for your newborn and yourself after you go home.
- Schedule to take the Labor of Love class to learn breathing, relaxation, and comfort techniques to help you cope with the pain of labor and birth if you plan to deliver without anesthesia.
