Childbirth Education Classes
ATTENTION ALL CROUSE MATERNITY PATIENTS:
For the health & well-being of our expectant parents, the First Steps Childbirth Classes are currently not being held in person in the Marley Education Center. We are offering online live classes with our certified instructors via Zoom. You will be able to interact with the participants in the class as well as the instructors.
You will be sent an invitation to join the class. At this time, they will be synchronous and we are planning to record them soon so they may be viewed later. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Kathleen Miller-Murphy at [email protected]
We are all working together to manage our program under the current Situation and we appreciate your patience. We urge you & your family to follow the recommendations of public health officials to help curtail the spread of COVID-19, and appreciate your kind understanding as Crouse works toward further protecting our community.
This 5 week series (2.5 hours each week) includes the Childbirth Preparation program as well as Baby Care class and Breastfeeding class content. The first 3 weeks cover all of the Childbirth Preparation Curriculum including a tour of the Maternity Center, exercises, process of birth, relaxation, breathing techniques and pain management as well as Cesarean Birth. The 4th week covers Breastfeeding including physiology and practical how-to's. The 5th week covers Baby Care including newborn care, signs & symptoms of illness, choosing a pediatrician and safety. Designed for busy couples who want to get all three classes in one quick 5 week series.
Each registration and single fee is for 2 people.
There is a Physician Authorization form that you will need to download, print & have your Health Care Provider sign. Please either have them fax it to the number at the bottom of the form, or bring it with you on the first class.
