Bringing Up Baby
Washington Hospital’s Maternal Child Education Team is here to help
make pregnancy and parenthood as smooth as possible.
Preparing for Childbirth
Many expectant parents start out with prenatal classes to prepare them
for the arrival of their new baby. If you are pregnant, nursing or just
looking for an informative or fun class to sharpen your skills as a parent
or parent-to-be, the Maternal Child Education Department offers a variety
of classes and programs to fit your needs.
We offer several classes for couples in the last trimester of pregnancy
that focus on preparing for labor, childbirth techniques, the coach’s
role and postpartum recovery tips. Other classes that are offered focus
on sibling preparation, expecting twins or more, and prenatal exercise and yoga.
Our lactation educators and consultants offer support to breastfeeding
and back-to-work moms with private lactation appointments (covered by
most insurances), classes and clinics. This location also features a breast
pump rental station.
