Event Info

Title: Labor and Birth Classes
Date: 12/2/2017
Day of Week: Saturday
Start Time: 1 p.m.
End Time: 5 p.m.
Location: 1200 J.D. Anderson Drive, Morgantown, WV
Details: Mon General Hospital is committed to providing you with the information you need to make your child's birth a comfortable and safe experience. The first two classes of the series (Weeks 1 and 2) focus on birth as a natural process (as opposed to a "medical procedure"). We will cover a number of topics designed to assist labor progress while helping mother cycle through the process. These topics include the stages of labor, anatomy, a natural birth film, relaxation, breathing, massage and comfort techniques, and positioning for labor.

The second two classes (Weeks 3 and 4) focus on epidurals, narcotic analgesics, medical interventions, cesarean birth, labor rehearsal and birth video, newborn procedures, and a tour of the birth center. Please be aware that just because you take the week 3 and 4 classes does not guarantee that you will receive an epidural at your request. You may still have to employ comfort techniques in labor until the anesthesiologist and your health care provider deem if/when it is appropriate to receive an epidural.
Fee: $60
Instructions: Classes are held in the Hazel Ruby McQuain Conference Center in the rear of Mon General Hospital. This is a 2 day intensive course, to be held from 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2 (Day 1) and 1-5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 3 (Day 2).
