Prep for baby with accommodating class options
In addition to live classes, Goshen Health offers an online childbirth and newborn preparation class for busy expecting parents. Classes offered by the hospital now include:
- YoMingo is an online course and the content is free. This one-of-a-kind tool gives expecting parents trusted information regarding pregnancy and newborns.

It is recommended to complete Goshen Hospital’s YoMingo childbirth content prior to attending a live class. To register, please visit GoshenHealth.com/Classes-Programs/Childbirth-Newborn-Education. If you do not have access to the internet or would prefer a book version be sent to your home, please call (574) 364-2582.
- Childbirth Express is a live four-hour class. The class offers hands-on learning to prepare for the birth of your baby. The next express class is on Saturday, April 27, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Hickory/Sycamore room at Goshen Hospital. This class is recommended for all expecting first-time parents or those who feel they need a more in-depth refresher.
