Expectant Family Program

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 help prepare parents and families for the arrival of a new addition as well as 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, lend guidance on breastfeeding, provide information on vaginal and Cesarean births and teach pain control methods.
 
Family involvement is important to us too so we have designed a class specifically for grandparents and siblings.
 
We recommend enrollment for classes by your fifth month of pregnancy. Most classes have a maximum attendance of 12 couples.

Please call 918-494-BABY (2229) for availability.
 
Classes meet in Classroom 3 at Saint Francis Hospital South, 10501 East 91 Street South. Directions to the classroom are available at the information desk in the front lobby.
