Childbirth Education Classes Resume at Milford Regional

Milford Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce that in-person and virtual childbirth education classes will once again be offered to expectant parents beginning in January 2023 and running through the end of the year. 
Each session will walk parents through the last weeks of pregnancy discussing discomfort, exercise and nutrition. Sessions will also focus on birth plan options, stages of labor, comfort measures during labor, cesarean births, immediate postpartum, newborn care and much more.
Classes will be given by instructor Laura Laird, a certified and experienced Childbirth Educator (BCCE) whose goal is to help expectant parents feel prepared and supported during their last weeks of pregnancy, labor and delivery and postpartum.
“We are thrilled to once again be offering these very informative childbirth education classes at Milford Regional,” said MRMC’s Director of Maternal Health Rose Galimi-Hayes. “Laura comes to Milford Regional as a highly recommended childbirth educator whose experience, knowledge and warmth will help parents through the final stages of their pregnancy journeys, as well as the beginning of life with their newborns.”
Milford Regional is offering several childbirth class options including an in-person, four-week session at Milford Regional on Wednesday evenings, from 7 to 9 p.m., a virtual four-week session on Monday evenings, from 7 to 9 p.m., and in-person weekend sessions at the hospital that cover everything over a two-day period on Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sundays, from 12 to 4 p.m. A tour of the Maternity Center will be provided for in-person sessions. Masks are required for all in-person sessions. 
Participants do not have to be delivering at Milford Regional to participate in these classes. It is recommended that participants register no later than their 36th week. 
The fee is $200 per session. Space is limited. To register, view and click on “Classes and Events.” For questions, contact Michelle Sanford, Public Relations and Community Benefits Manager, at 508-422-2827 or [email protected].
