Prepared Childbirth Classes

Prepared Childbirth Classes

Expectant mothers are encouraged to attend these classes with their partner or other support persons that will be their labor companion. Suggested enrollment for classes is recommended 6-8 weeks prior to your due date (about the start of your 7th month of pregnancy). Our classes focus on labor and delivery process, relaxation breathing and comfort measures. The instructors are experienced Birthing Center Registered Nurses and other Health Care Providers.

Each series consists of five classes, held on Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30 pm in Conference Room 1 (located in the lower level at Ministry Saint Mary’s Hospital). Registration is required as we may need to change dates or cancel for unexpected reasons and will let you know if that should occur.

Class 1:  Introduction to Breathing & Relaxation, Terminology and Early Signs of Labor

Class 2:  Active Labor& Delivery

Class 3:  Anesthesia, C-Sections and Delivery Video

Class 4:  OB/GYN Speaker & Birthing Center Tour

Class 5:  Pediatrician/Oneida County Public Health Nurse & Lactation Presentation

Registration:  You may register online or call 715-361-2088 or 715-361-2091. Please register 1-2 months in advance of the series you chose to attend (your 5th to 6th month of pregnancy). Class size is limited and registration is required. Cost for either the 5-week series or all day Saturday class is $25.00. Please do not let the registration fees prevent you from registering for a class. Contact us at 715-361-2088 or 715-361-2091 to discuss options.

The Saturday classes will be condensed and may not have all the health care providers present. Some of these classes will be off-site. Please watch for updates on this page.
