Our childbirth classes take place at the Maternity Unit at Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center. They include everything from what to expect during labor and delivery to caring for your newborn. The more you understand about the process of labor, the better prepared you and your support partner will feel.
" I absolutely LOVE the childbirth classes. This is
a great preparation for giving birth. I highly recommend it. Thank You."
Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center supports and encourages breastfeeding as the preferred method of providing nutrition to infants.

In addition, an International Board Certified Lactation consultant (IBCLC) is available to assist you in the hospital for challenging situations.
