Momease, a premier childbirth series, is conveniently located at George Washington University Hospital and in Alexandria, Va. Moms and their partners may choose from a list of classes taught by certified childbirth instructors who present information objectively with respect to each family’s needs and choices. Momease’s childbirth express class is designed for parents who need a crash course in birth but are crunched for time. Expect to cover labor and delivery options, breathing and relaxation techniques, Cesarean section or vaginal births, drugs and natural childbirth options. If you prefer classes with more of a concentration on a particular topic, try the childbirth 1, 2, 3 medical birth or natural approach to childbirth class.
George Washington University Hospital Selects Momease, Inc. to Provide its Childbirth Classes
Washington, D.C. – George Washington University Hospital (GWUH) has chosen Alexandria-based Momease to spearhead its childbirth education courses.
“We were very impressed with Momease’s approach to patient care and the level and range of education their instructors can provide,” said GWUH spokesperson Lisa McDonald. The contract with GWUH requires Momease instructors to be certified by both the hospital and Momease. The classes taught at the hospital range from pregnancy and infant massage to birthing techniques and infant safety. Momease also offers some “out-of-the-ordinary” classes.
“Our belly dancing class is one of our most popular exercise classes,” said Momease Project Manager Carolyn Alexander. “It’s a great way to maintain muscle tone and relieve stress.”
Besides preparing expecting parents for the birth, Momease classes help parents make the transition into parenthood by providing support sessions for both moms and dads. These sessions give new parents a place to discuss difficult topics such as “baby blues” and maintaining the couple’s relationship.
“Becoming a parent can be full of excitement and anxiety,” said Alexander. “We’re proud that our classes do more than teach basic delivery techniques. We help our parents through the entire process into parenthood.”
“We’re very excited to be part of a team that values pregnancy education and believes it is a vital part of quality health care,” said Alexander. “We’re looking forward to building a long-standing relationship with GWUH’s patients and doctors.”
