Childbirth Education Classes
This interactive class will assist expectant mothers and their support person in preparing for the birth of their children. Topics covered, but not limited to, include what to expect during your hospital stay, caring for your new baby, care of the mother before, during, and after delivery, the need for increased communication between mother and coach, explaining the different pain control options, and nutrition options for your infant. You will also go on a tour of the OB department dependent upon Covid/Influenza Restrictions at that time so you become familiar with the surroundings before you come to deliver. The class is offered every other month beginning in January and meets at Gibson Area Hospital in the evenings. The hours are from 5:30 pm-7:30 pm. There is no fee for mothers who will be delivering at G.A.H. The cost for mothers not delivering at G.A.H is $50.00. Our Certified Childbirth Educator instructs the class.
