Prenatal Class

The Birthing Center at Jefferson Medical Center offers a four week “Prepared Childbirth” series that explains the birth process, the changes you and your baby are experiencing and relaxation techniques to use during labor.

Please plan to attend the class series closest to your seventh month of pregnancy. Pre-registration is required and can be done through the mail by filling out the enclosed form or by registering at the Jefferson Medical Center Cashier’s desk just inside the main front door. The cost is $60 for four classes. Check with your insurance company for coverage. If you have a West Virginia Medicaid card, please submit a photocopy of the card with the registration form. Information can also be obtained by calling 304-728-1713.

All classes meet in the first floor conference room on Thursday evenings from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Bring your partner or the support person who will be with you during labor. Please dress comfortably and for the second class, bring two pillows.
