Prepared Childbirth Class

Date: Sunday April 14, 2024
Starts at: 1:00 pm
Ends at: 5:00 pm
Location: Samaritan Car-Freshner for Women and Children Education Room, 830 Washington St, Watertown, NY

The Childbirth Class is an educational experience to show mothers and support persons what to expect during the birthing experience while in the hospital. This FREE class should ideally be taken near the seventh month of pregnancy (after 28 weeks) and is designed to give an overview of relaxation techniques, pain management options, the laboring process, when to come to the hospital, and understanding how all of this works together with your expectations during birth.

Please come directly to the dedicated entrance for the Car-Freshner Center for Women and Children, located directly off Sherman Street in Watertown, on the back end of the hospital campus. You will enter the main doors and hit the intercom button to tell the staff you are here, then proceed to the elevators to the 3rd floor. There is another locked door with an intercom before entering the unit. Safety is a priority for our newborns, and we are a secure unit.

 We are excited to be part of your journey and show you all the reasons Samaritan is the best choice for you and your baby with a fantastic staff, beautiful and spacious rooms, and unit, plus the only Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in the region. We are a Children’s Miracle Network hospital.

The class is back in person. Please register using the form below. Class is free to attend, but spots are limited.
