The childbirth preparation class is a four week course that prepares expectant families for birth. Some topics covered include:
• Last stages of pregnancy and the childbirth process
• Relaxation, breathing, and “coaching” techniques
• Post-partum, breastfeeding, and newborn care
We offer a one day abbreviated class for those who are unable to attend the 4 week series.
This program requires registration and has a $10.00 fee. You must register in person at Education in the Mercy Outpatient Center and pay a $10.00 fee by personal check, cashiers check, or money order (cash and cards are not accepted at this time).
