Childbirth Preparation EXPRESS 1 Saturday Only
Childbirth Preparation EXPRESS
By popular demand our childbirth preparation class has been condensed into 8 hours!!
Giving birth deserves thoughtful and careful preparation. Childbirth instructors here at Methodist Mansfield Medical Center will guide new parents through this joyful experience. Our ultimate goal is for the woman (as well as her partner) to gain confidence in her body’s ability to give birth and knowledge to make informed choices regarding their birth experience.
Topics covered include:
*Anatomy and physiology of the birth process
*Role of labor support person
*Pain control theories and options
*Medications used in labor
*Labor rehearsal and delivery
*Cesarean section delivery and recovery
*Physical and emotional postpartum care
*Detailed hospital tour
Note: This express class includes shortened versions of the same topics as our 4-week childbirth series, for a convenient one-day class.
Classes are held in spacious conference room A&B with large plasma screens for educational films and power point presentation. Please bring your own exercise/yoga mat for floor exercises as well as pillow(s) and a blanket. Dress comfortably. You are welcome to bring drinks or snacks with you to class.
