There is a lot to learn about pregnancy, labor, and caring for a newborn at home. Whether you are a new parent or are adding a new member to your growing family, we offer birthing classes to all of our patients. Courses include childbirth preparation and breastfeeding education. Both day and evening classes are available for your convenience.

We’re With You Every Step of the Way

Planning for a new baby is one of the most exciting experiences you’ll ever have. With the arrival of your newborn, your life will change. But even with all the joy that a new baby brings, it’s very natural to have fears, doubts and concerns. Myrtue Medical Center offers Childbirth Preparation Classes to prepare and support you during the entire process of becoming a parent.

Bump2Baby New Mom Support Group

Our Bump2Baby group is for pregnant women and new moms to gather and support each other in a relaxed atmosphere. Let us help answer questions about baby care, infant safety/feeding and new mom struggles. Our maternal/infant nurse invites new moms to come with their babies and share in the strong, postpartum support network offered at our meetings. Special speakers will be invited throughout the year to address topics the group would like more information about.

This free group meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday morning of every month from 10:00-11:00 a.m. in the Birthing Center waiting room on the third floor. This is open to anyone who is expecting or with a baby, newborn to 1 year. For questions, please call 712.755.4482 or email.
