All Childbirth courses have been cancelled through April 30, 2020 and will be rescheduled at a later date. We apologize that we can not provide these classes at the current time, but the health and safety of our providers, associates, patients and communities is our top priority.  Please consider our eClass, Understanding Birth as an alternative.    

Knowing what to expect prior to the birth of your baby will go a long way towards helping prepare you and your family during and after pregnancy. Whether you are planning to give birth naturally or with the assistance of medications, this class is designed to help an expectant mother and her support partner prepare for the birth of her baby. For your comfort, we recommend completing this series 2-3 months before your due date.
