Online Childbirth Education Available
The Gift of Motherhood eLearning Childbirth Education Program is an alternative for those who cannot attend a conventional prepared childbirth class due to bed rest, scheduling conflicts or time constraints. The program is an interactive, Web-based program that includes animated illustrations, videos, voice-overs, and games. It can be previewed on a PC or Mac. High speed internet is advised but dial-up will work; it will take longer to download. The cost of the program is $75. Once you pay for the program, a code will be emailed to you. It will be valid for 14 days starting from the time you first logon. Your childbirth educator’s contact information, email and/or phone number will be included in the program for questions and support on the contact page. Preview the eLearning experience.
