Childbirth Education For Parents Delivering at Oneida Health

Being a new parent is full of new adventures. The purpose of our Child Birth classes are to provide you and your partner with a foundation of knowledge for a healthy baby and you.

We host Child Birth classes once a month for our expecting parents. Each class is broken into three sessions on consecutive Thursdays from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

The cost of our Child Birth class is covered by your insurance and is no cost to you. The only requirement is that you are delivering at the Lullaby Center at the Oneida Health Hospital.

What Should I Expect?

Our Child Birth Educators enjoy providing our expecting parents with a very personal experience. We are focused on providing a very broad range of educational resources as well as helping address individual questions you may have based on your personal circumstance.

Some key areas we will cover:

  1. Anatomy and body changes during a vaginal delivery or cesarean birth
  2. Stages of Labor
  3. Signs and symptoms of pre-term labor and when to call your physician
  4. Managing pain during labor
  5. Newborn Care
  6. Feeding your baby

We will also provide our expecting parents with a tour of the Lullaby Center so that on your day you are more familiar with your environment. *During this COVID-19 pandemic we have suspended tours for the time being.
