Prenatal and Community Health Education
Prenatal and Community Health Education classes are conducted by clinical staff, certified childbirth, CPR and First Aid instructors and other credentialed educators on a variety of topics aimed at promoting community safety, health and wellness.
Our prenatal education courses include childbirth education, on-line childbirth education, infant care I and II, breastfeeding, the new dad difference and the art of becoming a new mom.
Our safety education courses focus on Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and First Aid instruction courses for community residents. Other courses, such as babysitting basics, promote wellness and safety awareness.
Located within the Community Services Department of Hallmark Health, Community Health Education programs are an integral component to a three-pronged service line which also includes: the North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network and Women, Infants and Children (WIC). These programs have been part of the core services available to families for the past 17 years at Hallmark Health and provide a perfect compliment to Hallmark Health System's comprehensive system of care.

Online Childbirth Education
Nothing can replace the warmth and personal connection you and your partner would feel in an in-person classroom environment. However, many couples find it hard to fit an entire day, or a series of classes, into their schedules. This online program allows you to learn at your own pace and convenience.
