Prepared Childbirth Classes
We understand the more knowledge you have about the birth process the more confidence you will possess. Our prepared childbirth classes will help you to understand the process of labor and delivery and will answer the questions that surround pregnancy, birth and your new baby. In addition, participants will receive pre-admission services and tours of the family birthing center.
Prepared child birth classes are held at the medical center several times through out the year. Each session will consist of three classes. You may register for classes individually or as a complete session. There is no charge for participants who plan to deliver at SCKMC. All others may enjoy the benefits of the class for a $10.00 per class fee.
- Final Stretch:Staying healthy and pregnant for 40 weeks, warning signs, and how to prepare for birth.
- Pain Management Techniques: Medications, epidurals, and other non-medical techniques for managing labor.
- Breastfeeding: Benefits of breastfeeding, skin to skin time, step by step instructions, and tips for success.
