Childbirth & Parenting

Classes are scheduled throughout the year…

Childbirth Preparation Classes

Prepare expectant parents mentally and physically for the childbirth experience. Includes options for managing pain during labor and delivery.

Infant Care & Parenting

For expectant and new parents … because babies aren’t delivered with instruction manuals!  Topics include parenting basics, feeding, how to calm a fussy infant, sleep patterns, sick child care, keeping them safe, and much more.

Breastfeeding Your Baby

For expectant parents who are considering this method of feeding. Topics include the pros and cons, advantages, how to breastfeed, what to expect (and what they usually forget to tell you), allergies and colic, foods and medications, weight loss, weaning, and the effect on your social life.

Support/Discussion Groups

Two groups offered for breastfeeding mothers and their babies, another group focuses on the ‘whole family,’ and another group is just for ‘moms.’

Birthing Center Tour

For expectant parents who are considering, or planning on, delivering their baby at Littauer.
