Please fill out an inquiry form for the class(es) that interests you. After you complete and submit the form below, a representative from our Childbirth Education team will contact you via email.

Childbirth Preparation: Inquire Here -- This is a class that gives the expectant couple an overview of labor and births, breathing and relaxation techniques, positions and massages, medications, coach’s role and expectations, baby characteristics and initial care, and what to expect after delivery.

Breastfeeding Class: Inquire Here -- Healthcare experts agree that breastfeeding is the best way to feed your baby during the first year. In this class, you will learn techniques for good attachment, feeding cues, how to know baby is getting enough and much more. This is a class for both the soon-to-be mom and dad as well as grandparents.
