Mercy Medical Center Sioux City
Childbirth Preparation Class
Pre-registration Required. A free all-day class taught by a certified childbirth educator to prepare expectant mothers and their labor coach for the baby's arrival. A tour of Mercy Family Birth Center and gifts are included. We ask that you please bring a blanket and two pillows to the class for the relaxation activities and some money to buy your lunch from the cafeteria. We recommend you dress in comfortable clothing. It is best to have a coach with you. This is held in conjunction with the Boot Camp for New Dads. Dads will attend the Boot Camp taught by veteran dads from 12:30-2:30 p.m. while the mothers are doing another activity and then you will be brought back together again. The class is scheduled from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., with sign in from 8:30-9:00 a.m. We will meet in the Leiter Room. Please enter Mercy’s Heart Center parking ramp off of 5th Street. Take the hospital elevator to the first floor marked P1. Exit to the left off the elevator and you will enter the hospital. Follow the signs and the Leiter Room is located on the first floor behind the Kaleidoscope Gift Shop and next to the chapel.
