eLearning Childbirth Education program

Banner Health is happy to offer the eLearning Childbirth Education Program to our expectant families. For many, nothing can take away the warmth and personal connection you and your partner would feel in an in-person classroom environment. However, there are many parents who are not able to attend a class in person, prefer home-based education or just want a “refresher.” This online program allows you to learn at your own pace and convenience. Being well-informed and having confidence in the facility where you will deliver your baby is essential for a positive birth experience.

The eLearning Childbirth Education Program is an interactive, web-based program that includes animated illustrations, videos and voice-overs and can be viewed on a PC, Mac or mobile devices. High-speed internet is advised, but dial-up will work; it will take longer to download.
