Read below for a message from Ascension Providence.

At Ascension Providence 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 to watch a video tour of our maternity unit.

From Belly to Birth is a 10 hour course that prepares couples for the childbirth journey.

In this class we will cover:

  • Physiology, anatomy, and the stages of birth 
  • When to go to the hospital and what to bring with you
  • Coping strategies to minimize pain and discomfort including optional positions, breathing, relaxation, and mindfulness
  • Complications 
  • Birthing options and decision making 
  • Medical pain coping and available interventions and procedures
  • What to expect at the hospital
  • Induction 
  • Cesarean birth
  • Postpartum Recovery
  • and more......

You will find out how to prepare your physical and emotional bodies for your birth. You may also uncover some unknown questions and some inner wisdom. Childbirth is is a rite of passage, a time of discovery.

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.
