Childbirth Education

Preparing for childbirth

As the safety and well-being of our patients, visitors, and staff is our top priority, all in-person childbirth education classes and tours are suspended until further notice. Virtual tours and childbirth education classes are available.

Virtual Childbirth Class

For your convenience, Englewood Health now offers virtual childbirth education classes and one-on-one sessions with instructors from the comfort of your own home. Virtual classes cover all material taught during the traditional in-person series: introduction to the labor process, relaxation and breathing techniques, baby care basics, breastfeeding, and more. Class material, including PowerPoint presentations, quizzes, and videos can be completed and reviewed at your leisure for up to nine months from the date of class registration. One-hour consultations with our childbirth education instructors are also included to address any additional questions or concerns you may have. For more information, email us.
