Classes & Support Groups

Instructors for the following courses are Nurse Practitioners who are also certified childbirth educators.

Courses will be held in the reception area on the second floor of Christie on University. Please call 366-1255 to reserve your space in a class. We suggest you reserve a space in the Childbirth Preparation classes by your fifth month of pregnancy, planning to finish at least four weeks before your due date.

*If the weather is bad, your instructor will get in touch with you and set up another day for class.

Childbirth Preparation

This class is designed for first-time mothers and their partner. Participants will learn how to help their labor be more efficient and less painful.The final months of pregnancy, the birth process and relaxation and breathing techniques are all discussed in these classes.

We encourage you to bring a support person who can help you practice at home and eventually coach you during actual labor. Please bring several pillows and dress comfortably since you will be on the floor for much of the class.
