At Parkland Health Center, we believe in preparing our parents for the birth of their baby. This means offering a tour of our childbirth center, so you are comfortable and confident when the big day arrives. It also means offering education classes that provide valuable information at every stage of this exciting journey.
For the safety of you and our patients, we have currently paused our in-person obstetrics tours and childbirth classes.
Take a virtual tour of our facility and see where you’ll meet your baby for the first time!
Labor and Delivery Room
Well Baby Nursery Room
We are currently offering two, convenient online classes covering the important topics of childbirth and breastfeeding. You can register online or call 573.760.8500.
In this instructor-led online class, you will learn reasons to come to the hospital, what to expect during your hospital stay, the labor process, pain management, the types of birth, how to care for yourself after childbirth, and things to consider after delivery like breastfeeding and safe sleep.
This class is a great way to get a head start and learn the "how to’s" and the "what not to do’s" of breastfeeding. In this class you will learn how breastfeeding works as well as ways to help your milk supply. You will also learn several different positions that are ideal for breastfeeding. In this instructor-led class, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and get a better understanding of why breastfeeding is so great for both mom and baby!
