EvergreenHealth's Welcoming Baby classes are taught by certified childbirth and lactation educators, who give you the pregnancy information to prepare for your labor and delivery, breastfeeding and caring for your newborn.
We recommend registration early in your pregnancy, as classes fill quickly.
You should plan to attend your childbirth preparation classes during your 6th - 8th month of pregnancy.
If you are expecting multiples, plan to attend during your 5th - 6th month.
Some of our classes can be taken privately - here at EvergreenHealth or in your own home. These classes will be marked with a link.
Here is a complete listing of our childbirth education classes. Choose the link for each section to get detailed information and dates for each class.
