Online Childbirth Education

The Gift of Motherhood eLearning Childbirth Education Program is a convenient alternative for expectant parents who cannot attend a conventional prepared childbirth class due to bed rest, scheduling conflicts or time constraints. It is also useful as a refresher course for repeat parents.

This online childbirth education program is an interactive, Web-based tool that contains animated illustrations, videos, voice-overs and games.

  • Access for a 60-day period, beginning from the date of your initial use. You will receive an access code after you register and pay for the class.
  • An accompanying parent's handbook, sent after registration.
  • A class with a certified educator to review breathing and relaxation techniques. Tour of obstetric department included.
  • The opportunity to contact one of our nurse educators by e-mail to answer brief questions.
