Family Planning and Childbirth Classes

In our Family Birth Center, we want you to be as comfortable as possible during childbirth, and we know comfort begins with you knowing what to expect. Our team is committed to helping expectant parents safely and comfortably welcome their newborns.

The Lima Memorial Family Birth Center offers in-person or online courses that can take place in the comfort of your own home. You will learn about the stages of labor, comfort techniques, common medical procedures performed during labor (epidurals, cesareans, etc.), plus newborn and postpartum care and more.
