Virtual Childbirth Education Program
For your convenience, Englewood Health now offers a virtual childbirth education program and one-on-one phone sessions with instructors from the comfort of your own home. Our virtual program covers all material taught during the traditional in-person series: introduction to the labor process, relaxation and breathing techniques, baby care basics, breastfeeding, and more. Program material, including slides, quizzes, and videos, can be completed and reviewed at your leisure for up to nine months from the date of class registration. Please note: You will complete the coursework at your own pace and do not need to access the program material on a specific date. One-hour consultations with our childbirth education instructors are included to address any additional questions or concerns you may have. For more information, request access.
