The prenatal class is held every second Saturday of the month from 9 AM to 3 PM with a half hour break for lunch (it is a good idea to pack a lunch for the break). Snacks and drinks are provided. There is no charge for this hands-on, interactive course. Partners are welcome to attend.
The class covers the last trimester; in particular, the things the expectant mother can do to help the delivery go as well as possible. We will discuss the stages of labor, the care is given in the hospital, pain control options (epidural and IV pain medications), relaxation
techniques, when to come to the hospital, delivery, infant care at delivery, breastfeeding, and postnatal care for mom and baby also are discussed.
A tour is offered at the end of the class. For any questions or concerns, please contact our Women’s Center department at (208)557-2729.
