At Phoenixville Hospital, our labor and delivery department is fully equipped to make your delivery experience a happy, healthy one, and our health education department is here to help you prepare for it.
We offer a birth preparation class designed for expectant mothers and their support person that explains the labor and delivery process and informs participants about medication and medical interventions they may encounter during their birth experience. Relaxation, coping and breathing techniques are taught and practiced, and newborn care and postpartum issues are also discussed. This class is offered one night per week for three weeks or as a convenient, one-day Saturday class.
In addition to the Birth Preparation Class, we also offer:
- Breastfeeding and Pumping Workshop
