Due to 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
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Role of labor support person
  • Pain control theories and options
  • Medications used in labor
  • Epidural
  • Birth options/interventions
  • Labor rehearsal and delivery
  • Cesarean section delivery and recovery
  • Postpartum recovery
  • Detailed hospital tour

Note: This express class includes shortened versions of most of the topics included in our 4-week childbirth series, for a convenient one-day class.

Classes are held online via Zoom.  You will receive an email with details close to your class date, and a package with a book via mail. Because we must mail books, registration for this class will close 72 hours before the class date.

*Registration fee covers 2 people (1 couple or mother and birth partner)
