Our childbirth classes are held every 1st and 3rd Friday in the evening at the Corpus Christi Birth Center at 1116 Santa Fe, Corpus Christi, TX. All classes are free but space is limited. So please call to reserve your spot.
Note Regarding Children: We love children but they can be a distraction to the class. So unless children are old enough to participate in the class, we ask that you make arrangements to attend class without your children.
- 6:30 - 7:00pm - Arrival/Refreshments - If you want to arrive early, there will be a short time for visiting before each class. We will provide refreshments.
- 7:00 - 8:00pm - Class - We will start class promptly at 7pm and will end promptly at 8pm. We want to respect everyone's busy schedules. So, just in case you have other plans for the evening, we want you to know class time will be prompt and that it is perfectly acceptable to come just for class if you can't stay longer. All we ask is that everyone is ready to start at 7:00pm.
- 8:00 - 9:00pm - Sharing time... for those of you who can stay and get more acquainted after class, you are welcome to stay a little longer to visit. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends and share your experiences with one another. But we will first take a short break after class time in case anyone needs to leave immediately after class.
For a woman, giving birth to a child is one of the most significant and life changing events she will have in her entire lifetime. The birth of a child can be a beautiful experience for the whole family.
Childbirth classes are a great way to prepare mothers and family members for both labor and birth.
It is our desire to provide you as much information as possible to minimize your fears and help you make informed decisions about your birth.
One of the ways we provide such education is through our Childbirth Classes. We offer natural childbirth classes specifically designed to meet the informational needs of families giving birth at home.
Birth is a natural, normal process and we teach all of our classes based on the midwifery model of care. It is our goal is to provide you with the information you need to build confidence in your own God-given ability to give birth naturally. We also want to equip your husband or your birth partner with the tools necessary to support you during labor and birth.
We offer group classes to all our clients year round. (We take breaks during peak holiday times and occasionally if our birth schedule is very full). If group classes are not available, we will gladly schedule additional time for your prenatal visit to teach private lessons upon request.
OUR CLASSES COVER:
The group setting allows parents the added benefit of meeting others who share their common goals and interests. As the group discusses their ideas and feelings about birth and parenting it gives an opportunity for everyone to learn from one another.
Private classes are still a good option for a woman or a couple who can’t make the scheduled group classes.
Either way, every client will have the opportunity to ask direct questions concerning their childbirth preparation needs.
Please contact us with any questions about our Childbirth Classes. We would love to hear from you!
