Your birth experience… your way.

You’ll never forget the day you give birth. We are here for you every step along the way!

December 6, 13, 20, 2021 - from 6:00 to 8:00 PM 

Classes are held in three weekly sessions covering the following three areas.  All classes are held in the Conference Room at Memorial Hospital, 1423 7th Street, Aurora.

Childbirth & Delivery  

Gather information on what to expect during labor and delivery, including labor techniques and stages, pain management, and the role of the labor coach. Tour the hospital and explore our birthing suites and infant nursery. Join with your OB team in creating a custom birth plan that ensures you have "Your birth experience, your way." From doulas to epidurals, Memorial Hospital is committed to honoring your personal birth plan for labor and delivery. Note: we now also offer HypnoBirthing Classes for Gentle Birthing at MCHI. 

This class session teaches new mothers how to care for themselves and how to care for their newborn.  It includes the daily basics such as diaper changes, umbilical cord care, daily routines.  We’ll talk about physical changes for mom, self-care, emotions, and more.  

The Golden Hour & Breastfeeding Basics 
Learn about the importance of the Golden Hour immediately after the delivery of your baby. Watch an informational video guiding you through each stage of this magical and natural experience. Learn why incorporating the Golden Hour will help your breastfeeding journey in the long run, as well as getting your baby off to the best possible start. We will then cover basics of breastfeeding, how to know if your baby is getting enough milk, and how to achieve a painless latch. Our team of trained nurses and lactation counselors are here to make sure you find success in your breastfeeding journey. This class offers a great opportunity in showing you where to start and why breastfeeding is so important!  For more information about our Lactation and Breastfeeding Support, click HERE.

Expectant big brothers and sisters find out about new babies and the role of older siblings through discussion and hands-on activities. This class is free to patients delivering at Memorial Hospital.
