We recommend you attend using a desktop computer to see the PowerPoint presentation, but it is not required. Please try to join the class a few minutes before the class start time to ensure you don't miss any information should you experience issues signing in.

Childbirth education classes will help all patients in our region prepare for labor, birth and the postpartum period. These classes are taught by Novant Health New Hanover Regional Medical Center OBGYN team members.  

Each childbirth class is presented as a series of consecutive two-hour Monday evening sessions, usually beginning on the first Monday of each month. Please check the session listings below for exact dates. To make the most of the time you spend in class, please plan to attend all sessions in order.

If you are unable to attend a full class series, an accelerated five-hour class is held either one Saturday or one Sunday per month. The content of the accelerated class is the same as the series.

We are pleased to share this exciting time in your life and hope these classes will help prepare you for your birthing experience.
