Here at Trinity Health, we understand the many emotions expecting a new baby can bring: excitement, joy, anxiety, uncertainty, and for most parents, a lot of questions. The Trinity Health Prepared Childbirth Class is here to help.
The Prepared Childbirth class covers topics related to pregnancy, labor and delivery. Did you know a pregnant woman's blood volume almost doubles in pregnancy? Or that pregnancy is the only time a human grows an organ for temporary use? What organ you ask? The placenta! And just what happens to the placenta after the baby is born
Yes, we also understand that one question can often lead to others. The Trinity Health Prepared Childbirth Class provides a time for you to relax and ask all those questions. The class is taught by nurses experienced in the care of pregnant and laboring families. The environment is casual and we greatly encourage conversations and questions during the class. We utilize lecture, video, demonstration, and hands on practice. Class is held one Saturday a month from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. We take an hour break for lunch. Specific dates for the class can be found by clicking the Preparing for Baby Class Brochure on the right. All expecting parents are welcome to attend. We recommend the class be taken in the last 8 weeks of pregnancy.
The purpose of the Prepared Childbirth Class is to provide education for you, and to alleviate any fear or anxiety you may have in awaiting your baby's arrival.
