Nanticoke Memorial Hospital offers maternity education classes on Thursdays from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm in the Ground Floor Conference Room. The class meets each Thursday for a total of five weeks – four weeks related to childbirth education and the fifth week focused on breastfeeding.

The maternity education classes are designed to offer information, counseling, support, and hands-on experience to help prepare for a new family member. They will cover pregnancy in general, information to prepare the expectant mother for labor and delivery, and will include a tour of Nanticoke’s Mother & Baby Care Center.

A refresher course is also available for those who have previously taken childbirth classes. The refresher class covers breathing techniques, signs, symptoms, and stages of labor, birthing options, and a tour of Nanticoke’s Mother & Baby Care Center.
