Childbirth Classes
Childbirth Classes

Carbon County Public Health is an organization that encourages a natural, healthy, and safe approach to pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum care. Knowing that pregnancy and childbirth can be taxing on a woman’s body and mind, we serve as a resource for information about what to expect and what choices are available during the childbearing years.

The Childbirth education and practices we teach are based on the most current medical evidence available. We hope to reduce the use of unnecessary interventions and improve overall outcomes for mothers and babies.
