North Florida Regional Medical Center Womens Center Parent Education
NFRMC offers a variety of childbirth classes.
This 6-hour class is offered either one Saturday or Sunday or on two evenings during the week. The class is designed to prepare Mothers-to-be to successfully navigate the natural process of childbirth. If you desire a natural, unmedicated labor, this class will equip you with the tools, techniques, and confidence necessary to work through labor and childbirth naturally. If you desire a medicated labor, this class will cover what you need to know and what you can expect throughout your labor and childbirth experience. Our goal is to help prepare you for your labor and delivery experience by providing you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to effectively, and safely navigate labor and the birth of your baby.
A maternity unit tour is included in the weekend class. You will need to schedule a separate maternity unit tour through the scheduling department if you take this class during the week.
