Classes and Education

Preparing for Childbirth

Expectant mothers and their birth partners are invited to attend our education programs on preparation for childbirth. These classes are conducted by members of The Family Place staff and include topics such as Prepared Childbirth, Cesarean Birth, Breast Feeding Basics, and Sibling Preparation.

Each class is designed for a specific aspect of pregnancy or parenting. For a complete list of all The Family Place classes click here.

After Childbirth

Following birth, we feel it is very important for both parents to feel confident in their ability to care for their infant by the time they go home.

Your nurse will explain and assist you in learning to care for your baby by helping you as you learn to bathe, dress, feed, and just become acquainted with the ways of your new family member. The Family Place also has a DVD Player with various videos available for your use in the privacy of your own room.

Remember, we are here to provide you with the support and information you need. Please ask questions and express your concerns so we can work together to give you the best possible start in your life as a family. If you have questions after going home, The Family Place staff is available around the clock. Just call, and we'll be happy to assist you.
