Education and Childbirth Classes
Our family-centered childbirth program includes a host of education and support classes from pre-pregnancy to postpartum, such as our popular New Mother's Social Hour and Breastfeeding Support Group. And, we make sure that prospective dads, brothers and sisters and other family members are included along the way. Classes are scheduled at convenient times and led by experienced, informative women's care professionals. Our certified childbirth educators can even arrange individual programs. For women choosing to breastfeed, lactation services are available during prenatal education and after the baby is born. Antenatal testing services are also offered right in the Women's Care Center in a comfortable, well-equipped area staffed by a knowledgeable and responsive staff.
In addition to obstetrics and gynecological care, the Women's Care Center offers services to female aesthetic patients with the same focus on personalized, quality nursing care in comfortable, modern surroundings. Take a virtual tour.
