Community Programs

At Community Hospital of San Bernardino, we believe strongly in helping the community become more educated when it comes to their health and well-being. Our Health Education Center, located at 1725 Western Avenue, offers a variety of health classes, events and resources for families.

Childbirth Education

Childbirth Class
This class is recommended if this is your first birth or if it has been more than five years since your last class. Classes include anatomy and physiology of labor, breathing techniques, relaxation and pushing techniques, and discussions on fetal monitoring and medications.

Parenting Education

Breast-feeding & Newborns
This class will cover health and economic benefits as well as the basics in proper positioning, holding and latch-on techniques necessary for successful breastfeeding. Community resources are included. It's recommended for any pregnant woman considering breastfeeding her infant. 

Breast-feeding Support Group
Although breast-feeding is a natural process, many women struggle in the first few months to feel comfortable and confident with their decision. Community Hospital's breast-feeding support group, "Mothers Helping Mothers," offers moms the opportunity to share their experiences, struggles and triumphs with other breast-feeding mothers in a warm and welcoming environment.

Care of the Newborn
