PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) – The Arkansas Methodist Medical Center hosted a childbirth class for expecting mothers.

Certified Childbirth Educator Tritia McGrew says this class gives new moms insight into what's to come. She hopes it will make them more comfortable with the childbirth process.  "Knowledge helps that out." McGrew said, "If you can see things and know what expect, then you're a little bit more prepared."

The event was open to new, expecting moms and their coaches.

It's part of a two-day series.  The next session, a breastfeeding class, will be September 15.

If you're delivering at AMMC in Paragould, admission is free.  The class if $50 to moms delivering elsewhere.
