One -Day Prenatal Class

Giving birth can be a demanding and physically exhausting process. Penn Highlands DuBois and Penn Highlands Elk offer prenatal training to minimize a mother’s effort through education and stress-reducing techniques. All prenatal classes are taught by nurses and providers who have had years of experience and expert training.

Classes include:

  • Welcome/Introductions
  • Hospital Arrival
  • Visitors
  • Labor Warning Signs & Symptoms
  • Labor Comfort Measures
  • Induction Methods
  • Vaginal Delivery
  • C-Section Delivery
  • Post-Partum Care
  • Newborn Care
  • Follow-Up Questions & Answers
  • Unit Tour

Because classes fill quickly, it is best to register by the end of your sixth month of pregnancy. The class is free of charge and scheduled can be scheduled through the facility you are delivering.
