Birthing Classes


Although not necessary, many women and families find it helpful to enroll in Birthing Classes. Not only do these classes help prepare you for the actual birth by teaching proven techniques for delivery, they also familiarize you and your family with the hospital and its procedures.

The Chester County Hospital offers a comprehensive Childbirth Education Program intended to meet the needs of first-time parents or experienced ones. They offer a wide variety of classes to help prepare the entire family in welcoming the newborn. The curriculum has been carefully designed to assist parents in obtaining the tools they will need for pregnancy, labor, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding, newborn care, parenting and sibling adjustment. Classes are taught by experienced maternal/infant nurse educators who have a special certification in childbirth education.
