This class will be held in Classroom 2 of the hospital, on the first floor near the Dixie Street entrance.
Registered participants will be screened by instructors in accordance with Tanner visitor guidelines prior to allowing entrance to the class. COVID-19 vaccination status will be requested. A mask is required for any visitor who is not fully vaccinated.
First-time moms and their partners always have a long list of questions, concerns and fears during and immediately after pregnancy. You may already be wondering: How will I know when I'm in labor? Will childbirth be painful? Will my baby know how to breastfeed? Will I have enough milk? How do I care for a newborn? What happens to my body after childbirth?
To ease your transition to parenthood, Tanner’s maternity experts have created two information-packed, four-hour workshops designed to put your mind at ease and prepare you to give birth and take care of an infant: Pregnancy Boot Camp and Baby Care Boot Camp.
This workshop is for Pregnancy Boot Camp. The topics that will be covered are: understanding labor, including the four P's, pre-labor, onset of labor and the stages of labor; understanding comfort techniques, including labor support, labor positions and back/long labor; understanding medical procedures, including induction, fetal monitoring, pain relief and second stage interventions; understanding Cesarean birth and recovery; and understanding postpartum.
Free parking is available in the Dixie Street Parking Deck at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton.
Each pregnant person is encouraged to bring a support person to the class. Please register yourself and your support person separately, but provide the same email address so that we know you are together.
In order to ensure a quiet environment for focus and learning for all participants, we ask that no children under the age of 12 come to classes.
