As one of the leading maternity hospitals in the Delaware Valley in number of babies born every year, we are committed to caring for expecting and new parents. In addition to providing advanced medical care and technology, we sponsor educational programs on topics covering planning for pregnancy, childbirth and parenting.
Abington Hospital’s maternity education program prepares expecting parents for the arrival of their newborn. These comprehensive classes prepare parents for labor and delivery, their hospital stay and caring for the newborn. Classes are taught by registered nurses who are certified in Childbirth Education and one certified Prenatal Yoga Instructor.
- Baby Basics with our Pediatrician
An open forum support group to discuss vaccinations, choosing a physician and newborn health concerns.
Our Chair of Pediatrics attends this class with a Childbirth Educator. They present a power point review of common concerns including how to choose a pediatric care provider, feeding choices, safety, care in the hospital- what tests are performed, expectations of being a new parent, safe sleep guidelines, immunizations and more.
This is a special class that does not replace our other classes. We do not review any DVDs or provide a book. There are no hands on practicing of newborn care in this class.
You are welcome to bring your questions to ask during our open forum Q&A after the lecture.
Grandparents are welcome to join you for this class.
