Prepared Childbirth Classes

The IGO obstetricians encourage all expectant couples to participate in a prepared childbirth class during their pregnancy to educate them on the labor and delivery process and arm them with helpful tips and tools to maximize comfort.

The classes teach all of the childbirth preparation basics and provide informational handouts for each couple. Couples learn effective ways to reduce stress and increase comfort during labor. Included is information on signs and stages of labor, breathing and relaxation techniques, medications used in labor, hospital procedures, Cesarean birth details and post postpartum information. Birth plans, breastfeeding options and pediatricians are also discussed.

Current class informational fliers can be downloaded below. The fliers will have information for calling to register for the class that best fits with your due date.

Classes specially designed to complement the care received by the IGO obstetricians, held at the IGO office, are led by Nancy Canty our nurse practitioner. An informational flyer is available here: Click to download
