This class will be held virtually during COVID-19 restrictions.
OBTLC Weekend Express was designed to fit your busy lifestyle and give you all the information you need to prepare for the birth of your baby in one day! Learn the importance of the Birth Partner during labor and delivery and how they can support mom. Couples will be taught labor-coping techniques (breathing, relaxation, focusing and positioning) to help deal with labor and facilitate birth. Discover pain management techniques and choices including when you can get an epidural and how to approach, should you choose, natural childbirth. Time will be spent discussing when to go to the hospital, creating a flexible birth plan, and what to expect after the baby is born. Breakfast and lunch vouchers are provided for in person classes.
Discounts are available for MedStar Health Associates, MedStar Family Choice, Military with spouse deployed, and other Medical Assistance participants. Please call 1-888-746-2852 for discount information.
Fee: $110.00 per couple.
If class is virtual, the instructor will contact you 3-4 days before class. Otherwise, the class will be held in the Community Wellness Center on the 3rd floor. Please enter through the Garden Entrance and take the first elevator on the left to floor 3.
