Prenatal Education

At West Houston Medical Center, we believe prenatal education and support programs make a real difference in how women experience pregnancy and birth. So whether you’re a first-time mom or experienced parent, we encourage you to take advantage of our many and varied education opportunities. It’s best to register during your fifth month of pregnancy.

Childbirth Preparation Series – One of our most popular programs, this series is conducted by Registered Nurses from Women’s Services with over 20 years of experience who focus on the physical and emotional challenges of pregnancy. The course covers all aspects of labor, delivery, and postpartum care, plus information on medications, intervention, and breathing techniques.

Childbirth Preparation-Second Saturday of each month from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. in Large Conference Room

Classes dates may change or be cancelled, if less than 5 attendees.
