Childbirth Education and Breastfeeding Support
Our Beautiful Beginnings Birth Center provides a wide variety of educational programs and services designed to prepare you for your birth and parenting experience. We believe that knowledge empowers families and that well-informed expectant parents can approach the birth and parenting experience with confidence. Following are our primary classes:
- Prepared Childbirth Classes: This class prepares an expectant couple for labor and the birth of their baby. A tour of the Beautiful Beginnings Birth Center is included with the class, which is offered as an evening series that meets for three consecutive weeks.
- Newborn Care Class: This single-session prenatal class provides information on infant feeding choices, sleep patterns, bathing and infant product safety. It meets on a single evening from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. or on a Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
- Breastfeeding Class: This single-session prenatal class is designed to get you off to a good start with breastfeeding. It meets on Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
To enroll in classes, call (508) 383-1580. If you have any questions or concerns in the coming months, please call our Maternal Child Director at 508-383-1515. We are happy to provide guidance as you anticipate the arrival of the newest member of your family.
