Childbirth Education Classes

MUSC Women's Care offers a range of classes to help you feel confident during your pregnancy and beyond.  Expectant moms should register for prepared childbirth classes by the sixth month of pregnancy for the best selection of class dates and times.  Ideally, try to complete prepared childbirth classes five weeks before your due date.

Childbirth Education Classes

Our Women's Care team will teach you and your support person what to expect during labor and delivery, relaxation and breathing techniques, pain management alternatives, newborn care, breastfeeding tips, how to take care of yourself after the baby, and where to go when it's time. This class includes a tour of the hospital floor.

Please call 843-792-5300 to register.
