Childbirth Education

Beaumont's multi-session childbirth class teaches expectant parents how to recognize and cope with the physical and emotional changes that occur with pregnancy, labor, birth and recovery.  Our class incorporates the Lamaze® technique.  Classes are taught by registered nurse childbirth educators.  

During the class, we will practice breathing and relaxation techniques.  Please bring two pillows and a blanket to each class so you will be comfortable during our practice sessions.

We offer two class formats for your convenience:  Two sessions held on 2 consecutive Saturdays or four session classes held 4 consecutive weeknights.  

You and your support person should attend the class together and plan to complete your birthing classes four weeks before your delivery date.

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 visit us at Beyond Birth.

If you are unable to attend this class, please visit us at Childbirth Education - Independent Study.

Family & Friends CPR

The Family & Friends CPR course teaches the lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only® CPR, child CPR with breaths, adult and child Automated External Defibrillator (AED) use, infant CPR and relief of choking in an adult, child or infant. Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment by using the American Heart Association's research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.

Family & Friends CPR is for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a course completion card in CPR for their job. This course is ideal for schools and students (over age 12), new parents, grandparents, babysitters and others interested in learning how to save a life.

Certification Courses Also Available at Beaumont


The Heartsaver AED course is for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs a course completion card in CPR and AED use to meet regulatory or requirements for jobs such as a coach, day care worker, teacher, scout leader or fitness instructor.

The BLS for Health Care Provider course is for health care professionals who need to know how to perform CPR, as well as other lifesaving skills, in hospital and outpatient settings. Students participate in simulated clinical scenarios and complete a written exam. The course certification card is valid for two years.

If you are uncertain about which class is appropriate for you, please call 800-633-7377 and a representative will assist you.

Please arrive 5 minutes before the class starts so that we can begin on time.  If you arrive more than 10 minutes after the class begins, we will not admit you to the classroom.  You will need to reschedule for another CPR Family & Friends session.
