The birth of a child is one of life’s most joyful experiences! We offer a family-centered approach for this memorable event. Pregnancy and childbirth can be a time of adjustment filled with many questions and concerns. To better prepare families for this experience, CRMC presents a number of excellent programs provided free of charge to our patients. Those who choose to participate will find these programs to be valuable!
The aim of this class is the preparation of the mother and father (or other support person) emotionally, physically, and intellectually for active participation in the birth process. The course includes: relaxation exercises, what to expect during labor and delivery, practice with breathing and pushing techniques, and care after the birth. Infant care including breastfeeding and infant CPR is also included.

WEE Care Baby Support
CRMC would like to help new mothers in the period of adjustment to parenting with all of its new responsibilities. We realize that many questions and fears may arise in the first weeks and months when a new baby joins the family. With this in mind, we encourage you to come by the Women’s’ Health unit when it is convenient for you and your family to receive support and encouragement.
Baby may only need a weight check, or mother may need some infant care advice. Assistance will be provided where needed, such as with feeding. If there is anything that may need a doctors attention, we will call and help make an appointment. We work closely with the physicians to help monitor mother and baby’s health.
