What will I learn? 

Why take a Birthing Class? 

A birthing class is an exciting part of your pregnancy. Our goal is to present you with information and 

familiarize you with the final stage of your pregnancy, labor, birth and beyond 

so that you may have the best birth experience possible!

What Should I bring and know? 

•A coach if possible (can be the father of the baby or anyone that is going to be 

  helping you with your labor)! A coach is not mandatory; come alone if you prefer.

•Bring 1-2 pillows by the second class

•If you have a birthing ball, bring that too!

•Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in. 

• Drinks and snacks will be provided.

What is the cost and how do I register? 

The class is free and open to EVERYONE (even if you are not a Cogdell patient).  

If you have any questions or would like to register, please contact the  OB department directly at (325)574-7150.  

Or, contact us via email at cmh.ssturdivant@cogdellhospital.com

Do you have an updated image with the 2017 Birthing Class schedule for the OB page and if so, could you also copy all the text in the image into a word doc?  I need to attach long description tags for the vision impaired to meet accessibility requirements.

Could you add the following photo and quote to the "About us page" for the Cogdell Foundation section please? "We are elated to have an ultrasound machine specifically for the clinic that is tailored to our needs," said, Kevin Williams, Administrator for the Cogdell Family Clinic. "The doctors have desired this for several years, and we couldn't be more appreciative of the Cogdell Foundation for having furnished this and for their continued support of the Cogdell Family Clinic and the community."
