Childbirth Preparation

At Wooster Community Hospital, we believe each birth is unique and special.  As you prepare for the upcoming birth of your baby, we invite you to participate in our series of educational programs designed to enhance your childbirth experience.  The classes are taught by an expert registered nurse who is certified in childbirth education.  A variety of classes have been created to offer you flexibility and convenience.
