Our "New Beginnings" Program

Congratulations on your pregnancy! We are excited to share this journey with you. We are happy to be at your side during this time in your life and feel that it's our honor to experience one of life's greatest joys alongside you and your family. Whether this is your first baby or your third, we know that every pregnancy is different as is every child. Questions or concerns might occur during this time and we want you to know we are happy to assist you in any way that we can.

About the class

The classes are held on Saturdays, from 9am-5pm every other month and will include a tour of the hospital where you can learn what to expect during your visit and an opportunity to preregister for your hospital stay. These classes will include preregistration, baby care, breastfeeding and prepared childbirth. The class will cost $25 for mom and one support person. Lunch & breakfast will be provided and payment can be accepted the day of class at the cashier's office near admitting.

The class includes

Prepared Childbirth: This will ease some of your anxiety and questions regarding the labor & delivery process. We will talk to you about how to time your contractions, when to come to the hospital, what to expect when you get here, the stages of labor and how to naturally manage labor. We will also discuss what happens during and immediately after delivery.

Baby Care Workshop: Here you will learn basic infant care such as feeding, diapering, bathing, sleeping habits and playing with your baby. Infant safety will also be discussed. This is a great time to talk with one of our nursery staff and ask any questions you may have.

Breastfeeding: Taught by our trained nursing staff and packed with information, you are sure to leave feeling prepared, comfortable and ready to give your baby one of the best gifts you can give him/her. Whether you are certain that you will breastfeed, or if you just need more information before making your decision, this class if for you!

We look forward to meeting you and your family soon. If you have any questions you can call or email: 936.291.4285 or beginnings@huntsvillememorial.com
