Expecting? Here's why you should consider childbirth classes
8/14/2015 12:47 PM
If you’re expecting a baby, childbirth classes provide information to decrease your anxiety, which allows you to fully embrace the miracle moment of bringing a child into the world.
At Central Texas Medical Center, we offer a variety of classes for parents-to-be that provide tools and tricks to help you get through your labor. We also teach breastfeeding classes separately to individuals who would like a more in-depth understanding of the lactation process.
In addition to childbirth classes, CTMC offers parenting classes to help prepare you for the first days of having your baby at home. A refresher course is available for those who are past their first pregnancy or have a partner who is experiencing parenthood for the first time. Classes for teens are also available.
Anyone can register for our childbirth classes, but those who deliver at CTMC receive them as part of their delivery package. If you’re delivering at another hospital, a fee will apply.
Register for our classes online here, or call the CTMC CREATION Health Institute at (512) 753-3818.
