Childbirth Support & Education

We believe every educational step taken, adds to your birthing experience. Because we want to help you understand the changes you will undergo, we offer three educational classes for expectant mothers.

We recommend that you be at least 28 weeks pregnant and please attend with a support person if possible, so that there will be two people retaining the information, rather than just one. To sign up, please click the buttons below and fill out the email which appears. Allow our OB department 7-10 business days to follow up with you. Please provide correct contact information and check your junk folder. For assistance with registration, please email [email protected]

Breastfeeding Class

Research shows breastfeeding is important to the health of both the mother and the baby. At Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center, we are a Baby-Friendly designated facility, and we encourage breastfeeding. This course will better help you and your partner understand the health benefits of breastfeeding, how breastfeeding is established, what to expect while nursing your baby from birth until weaning. It also addresses the most common concerns of women who breastfeed.

Childbirth Education: Labor & Delivery

Childbirth Ed: Labor & Delivery offers a basic understanding for you and your support person(s) of what to expect during delivery at Carson Tahoe Hospital. To better prepare you for delivery we cover topics such as: danger signs in pregnancy, when to come to the hospital, what to bring with you, arriving in Labor & Delivery, and what to expect during delivery. There will be a tour at the conclusion of the class.

Childbirth Education: Newborn Care

Childbirth Ed: Newborn Care offers a basic understanding for you and your support person(s) of what to expect once your newborn arrives. To better prepare you for your newborns arrival at Carson Tahoe Health, we cover topics such as care and warning signs for mom and baby when you go home.
