Description

The Childbirth 2-Week Series is a wonderful option for a Childbirth Class.

It offers couples the opportunity to return on Week 2 to ask questions and review the prior weeks class content before additional material is presented. The same material is covered in a 1-day and 2-week class.

A 2-week class allows for a mom to not have to sit through an all-day class or who cannot attend a weekend class with their personal schedule.

Congratulations! Expecting a baby is so exciting and it brings with it many questions that may include:

  • What are the signs that my labor has begun?
  • The normal progress of labor and birth
  • What are some of the techniques and options for coping with  labor pain
  • How can my spouse/partner help during the labor
  • When to call your doctor

Our Childbirth Preparation Classes are taught by RN's specially certified in Childbirth Education. You will learn important information about labor, delivery and postpartum care. It is important that you find out how to identify the signs of labor, concerns and what happens to your body as your baby makes his or her way into the world.

Address your questions: During childbirth classes, you'll have the chance to ask your questions and likely find that others in your class share the same concerns. Your instructor can dispel myths and help put your mind at ease.

The Labor Coach has an important role: Our classes offer your partner or labor coach the chance to understand the process of childbirth as they have questions, too. We will discuss how your Labor Coach (your spouse, partner, etc.) can help support you during labor.

Discuss options for handling pain: Many moms worry about how they will handle labor pain. Your instructor will discuss methods such as breathing techniques, relaxation and visualization for coping with contractions. Classes also cover the pros and cons of common medications, such as epidurals and analgesics used in labor.

Get the basics on hospital policies and procedures

Our goal is to provide you with information to prepare for childbirth, help you make informed decisions, and minimize your fears. Couples will be provided with a book to take home.

For the weeknight Childbirth series held at Willowood, the tour is not included, please plan to schedule a tour separately.

For the floor work exercises in our classes, please bring 2 bed pillows. You are welcome to bring bottled water/juice and snacks.

Please note- our Childbirth Preparation class does not cover Breastfeeding or Caring for Baby class content. You will feel more prepared to care for your newborn by attending those classes as well.

$105/couple payable when you register online. Please note- when registering for this prenatal class, the fee is per couple. You need only register the expectant mothers name. When you register a support person, our system counts it as 2 couples. There is no need to register an additional name with moms when you register. Thank you.

Contact your insurance company about class fee reimbursement.

Our class fees are based on one book/set of handouts per registration. Every registration includes an expectant mom to bring one support person to class.

Every expectant mother should register separately.

If you have any questions about any of our classes or groups, please e-mail our Lead Childbirth Educator, Amy, at Amy.Goldberg@Jefferson.edu
