Welcome to Childbirth- Online class

Whether you are awaiting the birth of your first child, planning to have children in the future, or simply seeking to refresh your memory for a subsequent birth, this unique program teaches valuable information and critical childbearing skills.

Childbirth: a Multimedia Course and Resource Kit was co-authored by a group of professionals in the field- including a family medicine physician with an obstetric specialty and a registered nurse, both mothers of small children. The lessons begin during the last weeks of a pregnancy. They then proceed step-by-step through the three stages of labor.

Each labor lesson identifies what to expect and uses specialists to teach coping techniques. For example, a physician discusses the best positions for delivery, while a nurse demonstrates pain relief options during contractions. Further lessons describe and model post-partum care for new mothers and their babies. Techniques for baby feeding and breast care round out the courseware component of the program.
