What if I need to cancel or reschedule?
Email the birthcenterclasses@nvhosp.org to notify the instructors of any registration changes.

Is it necessary to attend both the childbirth class and breastfeeding class?
General breastfeeding education is included in the childbirth class sessions. If you are looking for an in depth class taught by a lactation consultant then it is recommended to sign up for both. You can also sign up for the breastfeeding class without taking the childbirth class sessions if you are looking for a review, a refresher, or are new to breastfeeding. 

Can I register for these classes if I am not delivering at NVH? 
Yes, this class available for anyone. Most information is general education related to labor and delivery. However, it will be a good idea to talk with your provider about facility specific practices such as pain medication options and criteria, guidelines for guests and support people, and standard of care for certain medical procedures.
