Childbirth Classes

Canyon Vista Medical Center’s child birthing classes are tailored to your childbirth experience here at our hospital. Our specialized classes are taught by experienced staff who have worked in our Women & Children’s Services. Your childbirth educator will provide you with information about pregnancy, childbirth, newborn care, and breastfeeding.

You will also receive a tour of the Women & Children’s Services department.  Books are provided to each participant.
