PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 crisis, all prenatal childbirth classes and Clough Birthing Center tours have been suspended until further notice. Click here for online childbirth classes that we find useful, though they are not affiliated with Emerson Hospital.

This five-week class helps pregnant women and their partners make informed decisions about childbirth. Topics include information about relaxation breathing, realistic labor options, and understanding the process of labor. Bring comfortable clothing and bring two pillows. A tour of the unit is included.

THIS CLASS IS HELD AT EMERSON HOSPITAL (MAIN CAMPUS) IN THE McPHILLIPS CONFERENCE ROOM, LOCATED PAST THE GIFT SHOP ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE CORRIDOR.
