Childbirth & Family Education Resources
We are excited to provide patients with the opportunity to attend personalized and convenient online childbirth classes. Depending on the location, our education resources are available online with live and self-paced class offerings.
Access Live, Interactive Classes from Home
Powered online, patients are now able to access a variety of classes through a virtual platform. Each patient can register to sign up for the classes for which they will have the opportunity to connect through a live video feed with certified and experienced childbirth educators. The educator will provide live and interactive teaching with dedicated time for the patient to ask questions. Patients now have more flexibility in choosing a time that fits their schedule and can connect from the comfort of their own home.
