Childbirth and Parenting Classes
Babies don’t come with instruction manuals—so we offer a variety of classes to help you prepare. Classes include preparing for child birth, breastfeeding, infant sleep, and newborns 101.
If you’re pregnant or planning to become pregnant and have a high risk of experiencing a medically complicated pregnancy, specialists at three Maternal-Fetal Medicine Centers are available to provide you with specialized care. Your doctor will refer you to this service if needed.
Each of our locations offer OB triage, an area that provides assessment and testing to monitor your and your baby’s health. Skilled nurses can track your contractions and your baby’s heartbeat.
Breastfeeding has many benefits for new babies and moms. We have certified lactation consultations to help moms and babies with breastfeeding in the hospital and after you’ve gone home. Our nurses will help answer questions and help new moms learn how to breastfeed with one-on-one assistance. Our nurses are extremely knowledgeable and supportive and will help you reach your breastfeeding goals.
Many of our locations offer professional newborn photography services right in your room if you wish to capture those first few hours and days.
Fairview pharmacies offer many supplies new moms and babies may need, including breast pumps and accessories. With over 30 locations, Fairview pharmacies have a location close to you.
New moms sometimes need help adjusting to changes brought about by pregnancy and childbirth, including back pain, bladder issues, or varicose veins. Experts at Fairview Center for Bladder Control, Institute of Athletic Medicine, and VeinSolutions will provide the care you need.
