Breastfeeding Success is pleased to announce that "ABC's of Prepared Childbirth" will be held online on the same time and date listed below. Your instructor, Ali Weatherford is a local birth teacher with a vocation in walking with new parents through the many different experiences that take place as their sweet baby makes its way into the world. We believe that during this time of social distancing it is imperative that parents are able to establish and maintain community support. This live virtual class will facilitate you and your birth partner to meet other families and to get your questions addressed in real time. Participants will be emailed a Google Meet Invite prior to their scheduled class. Course materials will be sent to participants in the mail prior to the class date. If the offered time for this class does not fit into your schedule several other classes are offered as well as a self-paced eClass that culminates in a live virtual Q&A. Registration is still open. Please call 512-808-0237 with any questions or for help with scheduling. We look forward to seeing you in class!

 At Ascension Seton our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, providers, associates, and communities. As cases of COVID-19 increase across the U.S., Ascension continues to aggressively respond to this evolving situation to protect our associates and those who we are privileged to serve. We regularly treat patients with infectious diseases and our clinical teams are highly trained in infection prevention protocols. Ascension is closely monitoring COVIDÔÇÉ19 developments and working daily in partnership with our local and state health departments and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

After much discernment regarding the best course of action to limit possible exposure to this virus and in an abundance of caution, we have decided it is in the best interest of our associates and the community to temporarily postpone or reschedule to an online platform all upcoming hospital maternity tours and classes, until further notice.  We will share relevant updates with you by email. In the meantime, please visit www.setonbaby.com to watch a video tour of our maternity unit.

The ABC's of Prepared Childbirth and newborn care is a 10 hour course that prepares couples for the childbirth and newborn care experience.

The outline includes:  Anatomy and physiology of pregnancy, labor terms, stages and phases of labor, when to go and and what to bring to the hospital, breathing, relaxation, comfort measures, pain relief options, interventions, procedures, medical support, what to expect in the hospital and options in childbirth, including information on inductions, cesarean birth, postpartum and the newborn care basics for the first 4 to 6 weeks of life.  

If registration cannot be finalized on your cell phone please use your desktop or laptop.

You will receive an email confirmation upon your online enrollment. If you need to cancel your class, we request that you notify us as soon as possible so that others who are on the waiting list might have an opportunity to attend the class.  We cannot refund unless the cancellation is made at least 3 business days prior to the start of the class.  The classes rarely cancel but we reserve the right to cancel if there is not adequate enrollment.  In this event, an attempt will be made to place you in another class, or you will receive a refund.
