eLearning Online Childbirth Education

Prepare for your delivery

There’s a lot to know about childbirth, and it’s important to be informed so that you can feel prepared when the big day arrives. We realize not all expectant parents will be able to attend on-site childbirth classes at our hospital, which is why we encourage patients to participate in The Gift of Motherhood eLearning Online Childbirth Education class. This is an interactive, web-based program that provides a thorough review on the basics and challenges of child birth. The class includes videos, illustrations, interactive games, and more to provide you with an immersive experience.

  • Identifying labor signs and symptoms
  • How to time contractions
  • When to go to the hospital
  • Cesarean information
  • Breathing, relaxation and massage techniques for your comfort
  • How your partner and family can help with your labor
