We recommend that you sign up for childbirth classes when you are about four months pregnant, and try to schedule your classes for late in your pregnancy. Our many classes and groups include:

  • A Time to Be Born, which covers labor and birth
  • Taking Care of Baby, covering everything you'll need to know in the baby's first six months
  • Breastfeeding, The Best Start, with our certified lactation consultants
  • The Fourth Trimester, an informal gathering for moms and newborns
