Childbirth Classes

FLU ALERT: Due to the increasing incidence of flu, all area hospitals have issued flu alerts. It is up to your discretion if you would like to tour the hospital at this time. Click here to read the full flu alert.

Our childbirth classes are designed to help parents prepare for baby’s arrival. This class includes a tour of the Maternity Department at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children or at Madison Hospital, stages of labor, types of medication, anesthesia and postpartum care. Four-week courses (one class per week) and weekend courses are available.

Cost: $50 (Each expectant mom is encouraged to bring one support person to classes at no additional charge.)
Location: Huntsville - Dowdle Center; Madison - Madison Hospital Wellness Center Classroom

We recommend this class be completed at least one month before due date.
