Childbirth Classes

Childbirth Services

Welcome to Childbirth Services at the Davajan-Cabal Center for Perinatal and Neonatal Medicine at Good Samaritan Hospital. We offer a variety of services in English, Korean and Spanish to support you and your family during pregnancy and after your baby arrives.

Childbirth Services is pleased to offer our First Arrival Series (First Experience, Baby Care and Breastfeeding) as a courtesy to those who will deliver at Good Samaritan Hospital.

Pre-Admission registration can be completed at the hospital in the Admitting department, located on the first floor of the hospital adjacent to the main lobby.

We recommend that you attend classes during the seventh month of pregnancy. Registration should be completed during the fifth month of pregnancy to ensure availability, as our classes fill up quickly.

Please wear comfortable clothes. You are welcome to bring one support person to all of our classes.
