Childbirth Education

Maternal Wellness classes are designed to equip parents to have a positive birthing experience. During this experiential class parents will learn:

  • Prenatal wellness, nutrition and exercise
  • Pelvic awareness
  • Comfort measures for labor
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Options for birth
  • Postpartum wellness
  • Breastfeeding
  • And more!

We offer one-day intensives and four week classes, as well as private classes.

All of our classes are now held at the Maternal Wellness Center and require registration through there.

We have fall 2019 classes scheduled for Sundays in September and November. We also have classes tentatively scheduled for winter, January and March of 2020.

The new Abington location is convenient for many parents delivering at The Birth Center and Valley Birth Place, as well as Einstein Montgomery, Abington, Doylestown, Paoli, Pennsylvania, HUP, St. Mary’s and Holy Redeemer Hospitals. This class is also convenient for parents planning a home birth in Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery counties. Contact us for more information about future classes. Private classes are also available in the greater Philadelphia area.
