Community Wellness & Health Education Classes

Cullman Regional medical Center is proud to offer a variety of wellness and health education programs to our community.  Below are some of the on-going programs we have available to the community.

Additional Health Education Programs are offered through the CRMC WomenFirst & SeniorChoice Programs.

Prenatal Education Classes

Prepared Childbirth Class

CRMC is excited to launch our NEW online childbirth class. We believe this is ideal for those expectant parents who can’t attend an on-site childbirth class due to work schedules, time constraints or medical conditions.
The eight-chapter program is an interactive, web-based class that uses videos, personal birth stories, animations, activities, and games to teach all the essential information parents need to know to prepare for their birth.

Our online childbirth class will help you:
  • Understand pregnancy – what’s happening to your body, discomforts, warning signs, nutrition, exercise, and more
  • Learn about labor – preparing for birth, pre-labor signs, onset of labor, 3D animation of labor process, and more
  • See how the stages of labor unfold – watch amazing real-life birth stories 
  • Discover helpful comfort techniques – breathing, relaxation, massage, visualization, focal points, hydrotherapy, labor and pushing positions, advice for partners and more
Class Fee: $35 - Discounts are available for CRMC WomenFirst Members and Medicaid Patients (call 256-737-2600 to inquire)

Your eClass registration includes:
  • Online access for 90 days
