As a mom-to-be, you and your doctor have decisions to make about these and other procedures. Education is one of the best ways to make informed choices. Education about childbirth also reduces fear and increases your chances of having a positive birthing experience.
Trained Obstetrical nurses teach a wide range of childbirth related and preparation classes for all members of the family. Parents-to-be and new parents will find these classes valuable since hospital stays are now much shorter than in the past. Newport Hospital & Health Services offers FREE online childbirth education classes to expecting parents delivering at Newport Community Hospital. We also offer Infant/Childbirth CPR courses (quarterly, 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.). Our staff cares about each mother and baby and works hard to get them off to a good start.
