Pre-Natal

Before Delivery
Child Birth Classes

The birth of your baby is a moment that you will always remember. SCK Health is dedicated to helping you having the best experience possible. We provide prepared child birthing classes to help you understand the process of labor and delivery and will answer any questions about your pregnancy, birth, your new baby, breastfeeding and much more! In addition, all participants will receive pre-admission services and tours of the family birthing center.  
Prepared child birth classes are held at the SCK Health Medical Center offered several times though out the year. Each session will consist of four classes. You may register for classes individually or as a complete session. There is no charge for these classes.

We pride ourselves on being a pioneer in the state of Kansas for providing the LDRP (birthing suites) approach to our patients. These special rooms allow family to remain in the same room throughout a normal delivery. All of the necessary items for delivery are brought to your room. Your spouse, significant other, or "coach" may remain with you throughout your experience, additional family members may relax in our private waiting area, exclusively for our OB families.
