The Family Birth Center at St. Catherine Hospital - Dodge City is excited to announce the continuation of Childbirth Education classes offered to its patients. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital temporarily paused all childbirth education offerings. As of Thursday, January 6, the hospital has partnered with Birthly to offer free access to virtual childbirth education classes, allowing patients to access valuable educational resources in the comfort of their own homes.

Through the Birthly partnership, The Family Birth Center’s patients are now able to access a variety of perinatal classes online at no additional cost. All classes are live, which means patients will have the opportunity to connect through a live video feed with certified and experienced childbirth educators. Birthly Educators will provide interactive teaching on a variety of top-of-mind topics and patients will have dedicated time to ask questions.

Classes currently offered include Early Pregnancy Preparations, Prenatal Education Bootcamp (English and Spanish), Coping and Comfort, Breastfeeding 101, as well as Newborn Care. Since each class type is offered multiple times a month, patients now have more flexibility in choosing a time that fits their schedule and can attend classes anywhere virtually via their laptop, tablet, and other mobile devices.

“We’re very excited to offer our community quality prenatal education that is quick and convenient,” said Ranae Riley, Director of the Family Birth Center.
