Birth Preparation

If you plan to have your baby at Brightshores Health System (Brightshores), you will need to visit the clinic during your pregnancy to discuss your prenatal care, birth preparations and any concerns or questions you may have. Information about Labor and Birth and breastfeeding are available to families during the birth preparation visit.

Women who are attending the Obstetrical Clinic at the hospital for their prenatal care will have the opportunity to see the Birth Preparation Nurse/Lactation Consultant at one of their appointments. When a woman is seeing a midwife or a Family Physician that will be delivering their baby, they can book a Birth Preparation appointment through the hospital. Call 519-376-2121 ext 3928 to book an appointment.
