Childbirth Classes

Childbirth preparation class allows you and your birthing partner to meet in a small group setting with Redwood Area Hospital Birthing Center staff. This one-hour course is designed to help you prepare for the delivery of your baby and become familiar with the Birthing Center. We strongly encourage that you attend childbirth class during your second trimester.

During the course, you will meet with Birthing Center staff to discuss labor and delivery routines, newborn and postpartum care, and tour the Birthing Center suites.

Classes are held the 2nd or 4th Tuesday of each month from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. If you have a time conflict, Birthing Center staff can work with you to schedule another time.

The cost for the childbirth preparation class is $15.00. Course fee includes books for you to keep.

Registration required at least two weeks in advance. Register online or by returning the print form. A nurse will contact you to confirm your registration. If you have not heard from someone within two weeks of registering, contact Wendy Dahl at 507-637-4527.
