EMC Maternity Classes


We realize how important pregnancy and the birth of a baby are in every woman's life. At the same time many changes take place in this period: physical, emotional, social. We are committed to help our patients to make these months smooth and joyful.

EMC Maternity Classes include:

  • 6 sessions of 2-3 hours each, starting from the 14th week of pregnancy.

  • Preparation for childbirth and the appearance of the baby in your family.

  • Highly skilled obstetricians, pediatricians, anesthesiologists, mammologists, psychologists available to answer any questions from expecting moms.
