Prepared Childbirth Education Class

Cost: $40.00 per couple

Oaklawn Hospital offers Prepared Childbirth Education classes taught monthly by a childbirth educator. A series of four classes will address breathing and relaxation techniques, managing the discomforts of pregnancy, options in pain relief methods, coaching techniques, labor and delivery options, caesarean sections and basic baby care. These classes also include a tour of the Birth Center. We recommend that you plan on taking the class in your seventh or eighth month or pregnancy. You'll want to register for the series right after your first prenatal visit because class sizes are limited.

Oaklawn Hospital also offers a one-day Prepared Childbirth Education class. These classes are scheduled approximately four times per year. These classes are very popular and early registration is encouraged.
