The birth of a child is one of the most exciting, joyous events life has to offer. Our experienced, board-certified doctors and caring staff look forward to helping you and your family have the most memorable and positive birth experience. Every pregnancy is unique.

Childbirth Education Classes
When starting a family, there are a lot of resources available to help you prepare for your new arrival. Blogs, books, and advice from friends can provide insight into what to expect. HFM also offers patients the opportunity to learn and ask questions directly with our providers through our in-person childbirth classes.
Pre/Post-Natal Mindfulness Classes
HFM Wellness Center is pleased to offer a pre and post-natal class focused on helping you feel comfortable, relaxed and fit during your pregnancy and after. Implementing stretches and relaxation exercises will help to increase energy and stamina while improving your strength, flexibility and balance.
This class, guided by yoga instructor Corinne Knab, will address the concerns of each trimester with safe, effective stretches and exercises. As your pregnancy progresses and your body changes modifications will include specialized yoga blocks, bolsters, chairs and straps to ensure safe practice. Students will learn deep breathing exercises and guided relaxation to help ease labor and delivery and promote a healthy recovery.
Class participants will have limited access to additional HFM Wellness Center equipment and services. Additional equipment and services may have additional fees.

Caring for Your Newborn
Caring for a new baby can seem overwhelming, but you are not alone. HFM is here to help you care for your little one from newborn on. HFM Women’s Health works closely with HFM Pediatrics to care for your family from birth to college.
My HFM Baby app is here!
Let us help you with your journey into motherhood with the My HFM Baby app. Our new app has been created to guide you through 40 weekly milestones to better understand your child’s development, prenatal care to make sure mom is taken care of through the process, what to expect during labor and birth, tips and information on breastfeeding, and expert advice on how to best care for your newborn. Our app will never collect your personal health information, but will keep track of your appointments, provide a journal, track the weight of mom and baby, time contractions, keep count of the baby’s kicks, give a packing list for the big day, as well as a feeding and immunization log after the baby’s birth.
Please click on the Google play or App Store icons below to download the app or search for “My HFM Baby” in your app store.
