Online Childbirth Classes

Imagine taking your Childbirth Education Class in the comfort of your home home, when it's convenient for you.  Mercy Health - Youngstown Online Childbirth Education Program is a convenient alternative for expectant parents who cannot attend a conventional prepared childbirth class due to bed rest, scheduling conflicts or time constraints. It is also useful as an additional resource to have at home when you need it or as a refresher course for repeat parents.
This web-based online learning program is interactive, and includes animated illustrations, videos, voice-overs, and games. This additional resource can be used as an enhancement to your childbirth class, as a review, and to reinforce what you have learned.

When you register and pay for the course, an access code will be mailed to you with your confirmation letter. This code will be valid for a period of 60 days after initial log-on. You will also receive a copy of The Gift of Motherhood book in the mail.
