Childbirth Education

Provided for expectant mothers and fathers, this course offers instruction, education and discussion of matters related to pregnancy and the birth experience, including:

  • Physical and emotional changes that occur during pregnancy
  • Relaxation exercises
  • Breathing techniques
  • The stages of labor and birth
  • Anesthesia options
  • Cesarean birth
  • Caring for your newborn
  • Breastfeeding

Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital is committed to the 10-step program for successful breastfeeding, because we believe that is the best form of nutrition for your new baby. So we’ve developed a special 90-minute course that helps expectant parents learn proper breastfeeding techniques and better understand why they are so vital to the health of your new baby.

Infant Care for New Parents

A new baby means new experiences and challenges for your family. We make sure you’re ready. This course provides the know-how and skills you’ll need to care for your infant and offers insight on how the new arrival can affect family dynamics.

Big Brothers and Sisters Classes

It’s not just moms and dads, but siblings who are also changed by the arrival of a baby. That’s why Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital holds special classes just for new brothers and sisters. They’ll learn ways to hold, diaper, burp and feed babies. And each child who attends gets a certificate showing he or she is ready to help mom and dad provide effective, loving care.
