Online Prepared Childbirth

Online Prepared Childbirth Class

Sarasota Memorial’s popular Prepared Childbirth Class is now offered online, so busy parents-to-be can prepare for the birth experience whenever and wherever it’s most convenient for them. The interactive, online course closes with an in-person education session on labor support strategies and a walking tour of the Labor & Delivery and Mother-Baby suites at the Sarasota Memorial Hospital main campus.

Online class participants will learn essential information about labor, comforting techniques for delivery, pain-management options, Cesarean birth and post-birth care for mom. The course includes birth-story videos and an opportunity to customize your own birth plan.

The online materials take about five hours to complete, but participants can go at their own pace and will have access to the materials for six months, plus access to the bonus “Parents Toolbox” content for 18 months.

The  ‘in-person’ education/tour session requires 2½ hours.
