We recommend that you attend one of the childbirth education classes available through St. Francis Medical Center. These classes are very helpful in preparing you for the changes that you will experience in your body and in providing you with strategies for coping with the rigors of labor. This excellent resource provides in-depth information concerning nutrition, diet, body changes, exercise, labor, delivery, and postpartum care.
The hospital also offers excellent classes on breastfeeding, infant/child CPR, and prematurity prevention. You will be given a class schedule at your first prenatal visit. This is an outstanding source of information and will augment topics discussed at your routine prenatal visits
