We serve you with LIVE ONLINE, IN PERSON, HYBRID IN PERSON and ON DEMAND classes.
New Planning Feature!
Wondering when to register? Ideally, you will want to finish your class 4-6 weeks before your due date. We keep our class sizes small to better serve you. To help you get the class that best fits your schedule, we will update the spaces available if 3 or fewer slots remain.
All of our Lamaze childbirth classes have Accessibility Resources to supplement your instruction at home! Get details here or ask your instructor for more information.
Sibling Class Special: Buy one, get one half price! If you and a friend both have a baby on the way, why not have your older siblings take this class together? Register normally, but select "Sibling Friends" for special rate of class fee.
