You have just received the good news that you are having a baby! We know that newborns need all the love and attention they can get. Our expectant family program is here to:
- prepare parents and families for the arrival of a new addition; and
- share in the excitement of the birthing process.
Our instructors are registered nurses, certified childbirth educators and certified breastfeeding consultants. Classes offered help parents learn about the pregnancy by: lending guidance on breastfeeding, providing information on vaginal and Cesarean births and teaching pain control methods. Family involvement is important, so we have designed a class specifically for grandparents and siblings.
We recommend enrollment for classes by your 5th month of pregnancy. Most classes have a maximum attendance of 12 couples.
