Out of an abundance of caution and Bon Secours' commitment to the safety and security of our community, we have decided to cancel this event. This is consistent with current CDC guidelines to mitigate risk around COVID-19, especially for those in our area who are at a higher risk.

The most recent CDC guidelines can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/specific-groups/high-risk-complications.html

According to the CDC, older adults and people with chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and lung disease should take extra precautions to avoid potential exposure. As a reminder, everyone can take daily precautions such as washing your hands often, using hand sanitizer, avoid touching your face, nose and eyes and avoid large gatherings where ventilation may be limited.

We apologize for the inconvenience that cancelling this event may cause, but are confident this decision is the right thing to do for the safety of our community.




This class is for those who have already completed a childbirth class; whether they finished last week or three years ago!

Our Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educators will work with you and your support partner to practice the comfort measures you learned in class and build on those basics to include additional massage techniques and labor positions using your support partner. This class will help you work together and bring you closer as you prepare for the birth of your baby!

This class is mostly hands on, with minimal lecture, so please be sure to wear comfortable clothing.

  • Bring two pillows, a towel or blanket and lotion to class.
  • Dress comfortably in clothes suitable for floor work.
  • Fee includes mom and adult partner
  • Scholarships available
  • Adults only

Classes are held in the Health Resource Center, which is located across the parking lot from the main entrance to the hospital.
