Our childbirth classes are designed to help parents prepare for baby’s arrival. This class includes a tour of the Maternity Department at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children or at Madison Hospital, stages of labor, types of medication, anesthesia and postpartum care. Four-week courses (one class per week) and weekend courses are available.
We recommend this class be completed at least one month before due date.
