Good Samaritan Hospital is excited to announce the continuation of Childbirth Education classes offered to its patients. As of April 18, 2023, the hospital has partnered with Birthly to offer access to live virtual childbirth education classes, allowing patients to access valuable educational resources in the comfort of their own homes.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital temporarily paused all childbirth education offerings. Through the Birthly partnership, Good Samaritan’s patients are now able to access prenatal and breastfeeding education at a significant discount. All classes are live, which means patients will have the opportunity to connect through a live video feed with certified and experienced childbirth educators.

“Good Samaritan has a long history of helping prepare new parents for their baby's arrival in a safe and nurturing environment,” said Amy McColley, Women’s Services Director. “This partnership bolsters those efforts, and we’re excited to offer even more educational services to the community.”

Birthly Educators will provide interactive teaching on a variety of top-of-mind topics and patients will have dedicated time to ask questions. Since each class type is offered multiple times a month, patients now have more flexibility in choosing a time that fits their schedule and can attend classes anywhere virtually via their laptop, tablet, and other mobile devices.
