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
This class is held one Saturday of every month from 8:00 am until noon. This class educates Mom and her coach on pregnancy, labor, delivery, childcare and infant CPR. The class also discusses exercises, relaxation techniques and medications available to assist Mom with the labor and delivery process. Anxiety is caused from "fear of the unknown. Our goal is to decrease Mom and her coach's anxiety by giving them an idea of what to expect including a tour of CRMC's Maternity Services Center. The Prenatal Breastfeeding class immediately follows from 1 to 3 pm.
- Cost: $25 per couple; $20 per couple for WomenFirst Members and Free for Medicaid patients.
