Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your child! Thank you for choosing RiverView Health for your childbirth classes.

Childbirth classes are held in January, April, July and October. The course includes four two-hour classes offered on four consecutive Tuesdays. The first and second class will focus on the stages of labor, breathing and relaxation techniques during labor and delivery, coaching instructions and a tour of hospital rooms. The later classes will focus on baby care, breastfeeding and CPR. All area physicians encourage their obstetrics patients to attend all four classes, with a support coach, to better understand what to expect during pregnancy and childbirth; and to help ease the fear of the unknown and make for a more enjoyable childbirth experience.

The course instructors for all sessions will be labor/delivery nurses at RiverView Health. The sessions each start at 6 pm and last until 8 pm and will be held in the Minnesota Room. Please use the Rehab Services entrance on the south side of the building for easiest access. The classes are free for those delivering at RiverView. The fee for those delivering elsewhere is $25. For more information, call the Obstetrics Department at RiverView at 218-281-9300 or 800-743-6551, extension 300.
