1-Day Childbirth Class

Maternity Nurse



Registration Required

Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center is offering a condensed version of the childbirth class series. Expectant parents are prepared for the physical and psychological experience of labor, birth and the postpartum period. Emphasis is placed on understanding the childbirth process and exploring methods of relaxation and breathing that can be used during labor.

We recommend the class be completed at least four weeks before your due date. A tour of the labor and delivery unit is also included.

Please bring with you:

  • A blanket.
  • Two or three pillows.
  • A watch that can count seconds.

$100 per couple. Register using mother's name only. Cost includes one support person. Payment is required at time of registration.

Please cancel 24 hours in advance, either on-line or call 1-800-SENTARA.

NOTE: if minimum class size is not met, you may be contacted regarding cancelling or rescheduling.
