Prenatal Education

The same staff who provide care on the obstetrics unit also teach our Happy Prenatal, Childbirth 101 and Breast is Best classes. This ensures continuity of care, as well as familiarity with our facilities and personnel when your special day arrives.

Mothers who plan to give birth at Lake Regional receive a free car seat when they attend all three classes - Happy Prenatal, Childbirth and Breast is Best.
