Birth Classes

Due to COVID-19, our on-site classes have been temporarily postponed.

We are now offering online classes.

At Beloit Health System we enjoy working in partnership with you in caring for our families during the childbearing years. Our Packard Family Care Center offers Birth Preparation, Breastfeeding, and Sibling Preparation classes (Big Brother/Big Sister Classes) in a state-of-the-art birthing center at times convenient for you.

Classes are free to those delivering at Beloit Health System and a minimal cost of $25 for birthing classes if delivering elsewhere, payable on the first day of class.

Sibling prep and breastfeeding classes are free.

Big Brother/Big Sister Class

Help your child prepare for the "new baby" in their family. Through demonstration, video, books, role-playing, and a tour of the Packard Family Care Center, children will learn how babies are born, what they will look like, how they eat and go to the bathroom, and where mom will be while she is in the hospital. There will be discussions with parents about jealousy, rivalry, competition for parental attention, and the need to share time spent with each child.

This class has been postponed due to COVID-19.
