Maternity Classes

Even if you already have a child, the labor and birth process can be both joyful and overwhelming. Taking a Maternity Class at UMC can help bring a little more of the joy and a little less of the overwhelmed feeling! The benefits of attending a maternity class include, but are not limited to:

  • It helps build confidence in your body's ability to give birth
  • Your partner can learn about how to support you on the big day
  • Get up to speed on best practices
  • Learn about caring for your newborn and breastfeeding

Sign up to reap the benefits today!
