Helping you prepare for childbirth and early parenthood is the focus of childbirth and parenting classes offered through The Family Place at Concord Hospital. Classes are open to obstetrical patients and their partner or support person. Classes are repeated monthly and can be taken at any point in your pregnancy based on your family's schedule and needs. The classes are taught by registered labor and delivery nurses and certified childbirth educators. All classes are held at Concord Hospital. Some classes are offered free of charge. Registration is available online for all classes.

Childbirth Education Amid the COVID-19 Outbreak

In place of classroom-based learning, we're offering patients access to online classes via Zoom.

We're also offering patients access to Understanding Birth A Comprehensive Guide that includes all the required elements of a traditional childbirth class including end of pregnancy, labor, comfort measures, medications, procedures, birth, postpartum, newborn appearance, newborn care and safety. Additionally, it includes an activation code that provides access to 51 interactive video clips and worksheets. To request a copy, call (603) 227-7000, ext. 3228.
