Prepared Pregnancy and Prepared Childbirth

Catholic Health is happy to offer a series of classes to assist in your pregnancy journey. We have a Prepared Pregnancy class to help you start out right and reduce your risk of pregnancy complications. Once you are further along in your journey, we encourage Moms and Partners/Labor Coaches to attend a Childbirth class for further information about childbirth and delivery. At any time in pregnancy, feel free to come out to our monthly Q&A meetings to talk to a nurse educator or hear a special speaker.

Prepared Pregnancy

Two lines on the stick! Now what?

This fun and interactive class gives you a look into how your body is changing, how the baby grows, and how to take care of both of you through this amazing time. Feel free to stay after class for a tour of Labor and Delivery and our Mother Baby Unit and follow-up later in your pregnancy for a prepared childbirth class.

Cost is $30 per Mom and one guest.

Total class time: 3 hours.

Prepared Childbirth

Childbirth classes are perfect for any expectant parent who wants to know what will happen in labor and delivery and beyond. Our fun and interactive classes will include tips on making your pregnancy easier, labor and delivery facts, and recovery at home. We will also talk about care for both Mom and baby after you leave the hospital. A tour is included! Please dress comfortably and prepare to have fun while learning.

Cost is $60 per Mom and one guest.

Total class time: 8 hours.

Prepared Cesarean Delivery

Cesarean Delivery, this class covers what to expect. We cover all the information in our Prepared Childbirth CLASSIC class, but without the labor section! We also discuss recovery at home, pain control techniques, and answer questions about the surgical delivery. A tour is included.

Cost is $25 per Mom and one guest.

Total class time: 4 hours.

Miraculous Multiples

The arrival of multiples is amazing!

This class is intended to add to the Prepared Childbirth Class or the Prepared Cesarean Delivery class for parents expecting more than one new arrival. This class will give you more information about what is happening both during your pregnancy and tips from moms who have been there! We tour the NICU during this class, but not Labor and Delivery.

Cost is $25 per Mom and one guest.

Total class time: 3 hours.
