LANCASTER, Ohio (January 9, 2012) – Fairfield Medical Center is offering a new online childbirth class for expectant families. The internet-based program is a convenient alternative for those who can’t attend an on-site class due to scheduling conflicts, time constraints or health issues.
The user-friendly program guides expectant parents through quality, evidence-based information at their own pace. Families will learn about:
• The stages of labor
• Comfort techniques
• Common medical procedures, including epidurals and cesareans
• Newborn and postpartum care
“We felt that families are in need of another option here at the Center to learn more about the birthing experience,” said Cheryl Eads, Fairfield Medical Center childbirth educator. “This online class is convenient and informational, providing lots of tips and checklists for parents.”
The site includes engaging videos, personal birth stories, 3-D animations, games and activities, making learning easy and fun. Perfect for PC or Mac users, all that’s needed is Internet access (high-speed is recommended). Once registered, parents will receive an access code and additional information.
This online program will be accessible to parents for 14 days following their initial login. The cost for the online childbirth class is $90. For more information and registration, call Cheryl Eads at (740) 687-8218.
