Our Childbirth Preparation eClass is designed to be conveniently accessed whenever and wherever you want on any computer or device connected to the internet. This engaging, evidence based curriculum prepares you and your support person for the final stages of pregnancy, labor, birth and the early days of parenthood. You’ll explore the topics below in an interactive format of videos, animations, birth stories, quizzes and exercises!
Also included are helpful resources and a Parent’s Toolbox that you’ll use again and again for tools like relaxation exercises, a contraction timer, birth plan checklist, what to pack checklist, breastfeeding and diapering log, baby milestone tracker and more!
It is recommended that expectant mothers begin the e-Class around 27 weeks of pregnancy but you may begin with your partner at any time and work at your own pace. The class takes approximately 4-6 hours to complete. You’ll receive a class completion certificate and have the option to “Ask a UT Medical Center Educator” for answers to questions you may not realize you have!
(And don’t worry….we are still offering the option of in-person Childbirth Preparation classes too! If you prefer to attend a class in person, click here.)
