Preparation is key to a successful birthing experience. North Shore understands, and that's why we offer free classes to help expectant parents learn about all aspects of childbirth and newborn care.

The class series, offered in English, Spanish and Creole, is designed for first time parents in their second trimester of pregnancy. Topics include anatomy and physiology of pregnancy, stages of labor, comfort techniques for labor, Caesarean birth and breastfeeding. Parents need to bring two (2) pillows and a blanket or mat to class.

Tours of our Maternity Center, led by the Childbirth Educator, are also a part of the class.
