Prepared Childbirth eClass
The eight-chapter program is an self-paced online class, this web-based class uses videos, personal birth stories, animations, activities, and games to teach all the essential information parents need to know to prepare for their birth. Plan to start this eClass approximately 12 weeks prior to your due date.
This eClass will virtually meet on Wed April 7th at 6:00PM when a certified instructor will introduce you to the eClass content and after approximately 4 weeks (sufficient time for you to go over the eClass modules) you will meet with your instructor again for an informative session and to answer questions you may have about labor and delivery.
The date for the second virtual meet with your instructor will occur on Wed May 5th at 6:00pm. Please make sure both virtual meeting dates work with your calendar.
It is important that you have reviewed the eClass content prior to the second virtual meeting, as this Q&A session does not replace any of the Prepared Childbirth modules from your eClass.
We invite you to sign up for a complementary Virtual Maternity Tour to receive current logistical information about NC Women's Hospital at Chapel Hill.
And to sign up for our complementary Virtual MOM Networking sessions occurring on Wednesdays at 10:30am, these sessions are most useful during your last quarter of pregnancy and after delivery.
Our childbirth eClass will help you:
Understand pregnancy – what’s happening to your body, discomforts, warning signs, nutrition, exercise, and more
Learn about labor – preparing for birth, pre-labor signs, onset of labor, 3D animation of labor process, and more
See how the stages of labor unfold – watch amazing real-life birth stories
