Can’t come to class? We can come to you!
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
: $35 - Discounts are available for CRMC WomenFirst Members and Medicaid Patients (call 256-737-2600 to inquire)

This class is to help Mom answer questions and sort through the myths about breastfeeding. The class discusses the benefits of breast feeding for both Mom and baby, breastfeeding techniques, breastfeeding and going back to work and begins a support group for mothers choosing to breast feed. The cost of the class includes copies of all handouts and a book. Moms are encouraged to bring their breastfeeding support person with them to the class.
