Lamaze Group Class
The main focus of this interactive class is to prepare you and your labor support for a positive childbirth experience.
The class offers information on pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period while focusing on practical pain management skills and information on your options during birth.
We're glad to have helped several moms already!
If due in late September or beyond, please submit a form after August 1st!
DC Lamaze is
Here to Help!
The instructors of DC Lamaze love sharing the miracle of birth with expectant families! We are here to help everyone prepare for a positive birth experience.
However, we understand not all families can afford the cost of a class. So, starting January 1st, a portion of our class fees went towards our new “Here to Help” program. Now we are able to begin sharing these funds with moms in need!
If you are an expectant mother who is...
receiving WIC benefits
receiving Medicaid assistance
unemployed benefits recipient (for 4 months or more)
residing in a shelter or subsidized housing
a teen* mother-to-be
...please contact us for consideration in our new “Here to Help” program.
Those who qualify may receive attendance in one of our 4 week live online Lamaze Prepared Childbirth Class at 25% off, 50% off, or free of charge!** We cannot think of a better way to help all women have a wonderful “birth” day!
*Teens under age 18 must be registered and accompanied by a parent or guardian.
**There is a $40 registration fee for those who get the class free, but it is 100% refundable when you complete the class.
Complete and submit this form to apply! -->

Please note that this program has limited
funding, so help us reserve it for those who
genuinely need it! Thank you!
So, I don't qualify for financial assistance, but the budget is tight. . . .
1. Don't forget to use your FSA and HSA funds. We offer receipts and certificates that can help you take advantage of the money you have already set aside for healthcare-related spending.
2. Add it to your baby shower wish list! A few friends can help you get diapers and others can contribute to your class. The gift of learning is always priceless!
This class gives expectant parents evidence-based information to get breastfeeding off to a good start.
Discussion includes settling in during the early weeks, possible challenges, breast pumps, and other tools to help maintain a positive relationship!
Sometimes you need a little one-on-one care with a private class. Perhaps you're on bedrest or swamped at work. Whichever the case may be, your class can be done live online with one of our certified childbirth educators who is also a doula! For details about class content and costs, click the link below.
*Online classes are our most popular option, but in person classes are also available. Click the link below to contact an instructor via email.
