Childbirth Education Calendar

The birth of your baby can be one of the most exciting events in your life and a moment that you will cherish and remember always. The journey will be filled with excitement, joy and an element of fear of the unknown. We believe that the more knowledge you have, the more likely you are to approach your personal journey with confidence and a positive perspective.

The Birthing Center at Lawrence General Hospital believes that all pregnant women and their families should be given the opportunity to receive education and support in order to promote healthy pregnancy, birth, and adjustment to the role of parenting. We look to provide information that will help empower parents to make informed choices regarding their birth experience.
