GOSHEN — In addition to live classes, Goshen Health offers an online childbirth and newborn preparation class for busy expecting parents.
YoMingo is an online course and the content is free. This one-of-a-kind tool gives expecting parents information regarding pregnancy and newborns. It can also serve as a great refresher course for expecting parents who have already had a baby. It is recommended to register for Goshen Hospital’s YoMingo childbirth content prior to attending a live class. To register, visit Yomingogoshen.com. If you do not have access to the internet or would prefer a book version be sent to your home, call 574-364-2582.
Childbirth Express is a live four-hour class. The class offers hands-on learning to prepare for the birth of your baby. The next express class is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 29, in the Hickory/Sycamore room at Goshen Hospital. This class is recommended for all expecting first-time parents or those who feel they need a more in-depth refresher.
