Childbirth Preparation Class

Oroville Hospital's six-week childbirth preparation class series helps you and your partner prepare for the arrival of your baby. Our educators are registered nurses and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC). Classes help parents prepare by teaching them coping techniques and relaxation methods. You will also discuss birth plans, the stages of labor, breastfeeding and newborn care. Our childbirth classes will give you hands-on practice and leave you feeling confident for the delivery of your baby.
