Labor & Birth Classes


Our Welcoming Baby Childbirth Preparation classes will give you the information and skills necessary to not only welcome your new baby into the word, but to care for your newborn once you go home.

We recommend that you register early in your pregnancy, as classes fill quickly.

You should plan to attend these classes during your 6th - 8th month of pregnancy.  

If you are expecting multiples, plan to attend during your 5th - 6th month.
