Childbirth Classes

We offer childbirth classes at our Round Rock obgyn office

We are proud to offer childbirth classes, which discuss infant care, as well as breastfeeding classes, right in our Round Rock obgyn office. These are the same high quality classes that women previously took at the hospital, but now we’re offering them in our office in the evenings and on weekends.

Registered nurses provide high quality education at childbirth classes

When you sign up for childbirth classes, you can rest assured that you are receiving information from experts. Every registered nurse who teaches these classes has helped women with labor and delivery at the bedside, so they are speaking from experience.

Childbirth classes also discuss infant care for a complete class experience

Many childbirth classes do not include infant care, but our classes incorporate this important information. We know that your time is important, and we want to provide you with all the vital information you will need to know for your baby’s birth and after you bring your baby home.

Here’s a sampling of what you will learn during your childbirth classes:

  • Vaginal and cesarean birth
  • Breathing and relaxation techniques
  • Anesthesia choices
  • Infant development and behavior
  • Infant feeding, bathing and diapering

Each breastfeeding class is taught by a certified consultant

In addition to childbirth classes, we offer breastfeeding classes in our offices in the evenings. Classes are taught by an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Breastfeeding classes are a valuable addition to your baby preparations, and both parents are encouraged to attend. This two-hour class teaches participants about:

  • Breastfeeding techniques
  • Breastfeeding equipment for pumping and storing breast milk
  • Breastfeeding in the hospital and when your baby comes home

Childbirth classes give parents confidence

Our Round Rock obgyns encourage every expectant mother to take childbirth classes, as well as a breastfeeding class. When you and your support partner understand what is going to happen during childbirth and when you bring home your baby, you will feel empowered, rather than anxious.

If you have any questions about childbirth classes or breastfeeding classes, contact us. We want you to have the very best birth experience possible, and classes at our Round Rock obgyn office can help.
