Brookings Health Rolls Out Hybrid Birth & Baby Education
Brookings, S.D. – Jan. 9, 2024 – Brookings Health System has rolled out a hybrid
education format for parents expecting a baby.
The new Understanding Birth &amp; Baby eClass teaches parents the basics about
childbirth, breastfeeding, baby care and postpartum health. Once parents have
completed eClass coursework, they are encouraged to attend the in-person
Understanding Birth &amp; Baby Recap .
“We’ve moved the bulk of our education to a new eClass format to allow parents to learn
at their own pace at times that work best in their life schedule. To help answer questions
and familiarize parents with our labor and delivery suites, we are also providing a two-
hour, in-person recap session every other month,” said Obstetrics Director Michelle
Sand, RN.
The eClasses are available in eight languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French,
German, Arabic, Japanese and Chinese. The recap session is also open to experienced
parents who are new to the community or would like a labor and delivery refresher.
All classes remain free-of-charge. To learn more about birth and baby education or to
register for a class, please visit brookingsheath.org/BabyClass .
