Class Title: One Day Prepared Childbirth - Paoli Hospital
Selected Date: This event currently has no upcoming dates.

This one-day childbirth preparation class is an alternative for couples who are unable to attend the three-week series due to time constraints or fluctuating schedules. The content is the same as the Prepared Childbirth Series but taught in an accelerated fashion. It is offered to couples expecting their first baby or couples who have never attended childbirth classes. Classes focus on both the physical and emotional aspects of labor and delivery, with emphasis on breathing and relaxation techniques. The instructor will discuss: the natural progression of labor and delivery; coping strategies for labor, including medication and anesthesia options; the role of support person; and the possibility of cesarean birth. Since the Paoli Hospital Prepared Childbirth 3 week series and One Day classes do not include a hospital tour, please register for a separate tour of Paoli Hospital’s Family Centered Maternity Unit. Childbirth Education Classes are offered to clients delivering their baby at a Main Line Health Hospital: Lankenau, Bryn Mawr, Paoli and Riddle Hospitals

Class size is limited so please register early. Lunch is on your own and not included in the registration fee Please bring (2) pillows with you. When registering, please use the mother’s name only and date of birth. One (1) registry per couple.
