This class has three sessions: March 3, 10, 17.
These classes teach all aspects of childbirth, including the phases of labor and delivery. We recommend taking them during the seventh or eighth month of pregnancy. These classes are taught by a Registered Nurse and Certified Childbirth Educator. The classes include relaxation exercises, breathing techniques and comfort measures. A detailed description of all phases of labor and birth, including medical interventions, anesthesia and options for labor as well as a birth video and a tour of the obstetrical department are included.
The fee for this program, designed expressly for patients delivering at Northwest Community Hospital, is $100.00 per couple. If you are not delivering at Northwest Community Hospital, you may contact HealthConnection at 847-618-4968 to inquire about class availability.
Please note, in order for a class to run we require a minimum of 4 couples registered. If the minimum amount of couples are not registered, a representative will contact you to schedule an alternative date.
Please bring a pillow for added comfort. Please bring water and/or a snack, if needed.
