Learning about childbirth topics in a fun, comfortable and respectful class environment is the goal of the Childbirth Education Program at Hazel Hawkins Hospital.

Expectant parents will be introduced to warning signs of preterm labor, onset and stages of true labor, pain theories and comfort measures. You will also learn breathing and relaxation techniques to assist you during the labor process. Possible medical interventions such as induction, pain medications, epidural and caesarean section will be presented.

Newborn appearance, breastfeeding basics, standard newborn care, car seat installation and cord blood banking are part of this comprehensive course that will help you feel more confident as you approach your special day when you bring your precious child into this world.
