Childbirth Classes

At OB-GYN Associates, we're specialists in helping parents-to-be prepare for their special deliveries. Our secret is that we tailor our prepared childbirth classes to meet your specific needs and to address unique concerns you or your partner may have.

Classes are conducted at our facility on two consecutive Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to make it easier for you and your birthing coach to get the information you need in the quickest, most convenient manner possible.

Please come comfortably dressed to our prepared childbirth classes. All you will need to bring are two pillows and your folder. Also, bring your questions and comments ... because we encourage active participation in our classes.

Three 10- minute breaks are scheduled during each session ... but we urge our expectant moms to get up, move around and enjoy the food and juice provided at any time during class.

Plus, with our help, you will have developed your very own birthing plan to follow when the time finally arrives ... to ensure that conditions are optimal for giving birth to be a positive and exhilarating experience.
