Childbirth & Lactation Classes

Child Birth Educator

The Birth Center at Ministry Saint Joseph's Hospital offers several different opportunities for Childbirth Education. Attending prenatal classes prior to your delivery is the first step toward preparing for your hospitalization and birth experience, caring for your child and responsible parenting. Since some of the classes are limited in size, please register for your class well before your scheduled due date.

Childbirth Education Classes 2017

As Ministry St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital, a part of Ascension, continues their journey of becoming Marshfield Clinic Health Systems, we want to reassure our patients and their families that we are continuing to provide the same excellent care and services that we have in the past. Included in those services are our Childbirth Education Classes.
Due to the popularity of our classes, we have limited the size of the group to 10 participants and their support persons. This allows for more one on one interaction with our educators. Participation is determined on a first come-first serve basis with paid registrations. We welcome all patients and families to our classes that also see physicians outside of Marshfield Clinic/Ministry St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. You do not have to plan to deliver at St. Joseph’s in order to participate in our classes.
