Birthing Suite Tours and/or Early Pregnacy Class
The free Early Pregnancy Class ideally should be attended in the first months of pregnancy. It is important to enroll as soon as your physician confirms your pregnancy. In addition to the class, a free tour of the Birthing Suites is conducted on the same date. The tour is conducted first, which allows for those not pregnant or in the later trimesters to leave prior to the Early Pregnancy Class.
Prenatal and Cesarean Section Classes
This series of classes, usually attended in the seventh month of pregnancy, includes information regarding labor, delivery, (to include vaginal, Cesarean section, and complications of delivery), post-partum, and care of the newborn. Upon availability, the newborn class includes a question and answer phase with a local Pediatric/Family physician. The cost of the series of classes is only $15.00 per couple.
Cesarean Section Class Only
This is the second in a series of three classes to be attended in the seventh month of pregnancy. It is encouraged for all fathers, who wish to accompany the mother to the operating room in the event of a Cesarean section, whether planned or if the need arises during advanced labor.
