Preregister for Your Birth

Early planning and pre-registering for your hospital admission will promote a smooth transition when it's time to deliver your baby. We recommend pre-registering with the hospital during your fourth month of pregnancy. Each time you visit Labor and Delivery, you will need to check in at the registration desk and sign consents. However, the process of checking in will be quicker.  You may register in person or online.  Click here for online registration.

Childbirth Education and Breastfeeding

Babies don't come with instruction manuals, and that's where we come in! Through our childbirth education and Lactation Center, we try to make having a baby, caring for that baby and breastfeeding as smooth as possible.

Childbirth Education Classes

Childbirth classes are offered as a one day, weekend class. We cover topics such as nutrition in pregnancy and breastfeeding, the different stages of labor and birth and what to expect during those stages, pain management techniques and the birthing process. We also cover caring for your infant at home, signs of labor, what to expect in labor and birth, preparing for your newborn, a hospital tour, breastfeeding basics and much more!

We also offer a three-hour Baby Boot Camp for parents-to-be. This one-time class covers a variety of topics including how to select a pediatrician, cost comparisons for your new baby's needs, how to handle changing family dynamics and much more! Take this opportunity to ask questions of our experts and put aside many of your concerns and doubts.

Breastfeeding Resources Center

The breastfeeding resources center, which provides support and education for nursing mothers, also includes an on-site store for the rental and purchase of Medela breast pump equipment.

Our board-certified lactation consultants are available on a daily basis and provide new moms additional education and assistance with breastfeeding on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. The consultants also work alongside new parents to assist them in gaining confidence with breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding classes are a great way to learn basic hints and guidelines but also tools and support moms need to face challenges they might encounter.  For more details on Breastfeeding Classes visit our Classes & events page or click here to register for a class.

Outpatient services are offered by appointment and provided on a fee-for-service basis. Please call (469) 698-1301 or (972) 834-0414 to schedule an appointment today.
