Childbirth Education Independent Study Skills

For your convenience, Beaumont offers you this online Childbirth Education program.  The Web-based independent study covers the same material as our traditional classroom program.

This program is appropriate for first-time parents or parents who have experienced a birth before and are looking for refresher.  Expectant parents who have already had a cesarean birth and want to attempt a vaginal birth with this pregnancy (VBAC), will also find this online education program useful.

Upon your paid registration, you receive a workbook and PIN number to access the childbirth education Web site.  You have access to the Web site for six months. The materials will be sent through the mail and can take up to seven business days to arrive.

After you complete the independent study modules -- including reading assignments, video clips and practice sessions -- you will attend the last skills class at a Beaumont location.  During the skills class, a certified childbirth educator will work with you and your partner, along with several other couples, to practice comfort measures.  Please bring two pillows and a blanket to class so you will be comfortable when you practice your relaxation techniques.

Your instructor will also share information about your upcoming Beaumont birthing experience and answer any questions you may have.

Please make sure you and your support person have time to complete your online education before attending this skills class.

The final session of our Childbirth Education Series is held four to eight weeks after your baby is born.  You and your new baby are invited to attend a Beyond Birth class where we will talk about postpartum adjustment, time and priorities as well as parenting myths and realities. 

Please use Mom's name to register for any prenatal class.
