Childbirth Classes

We are pleased to offer ongoing education and support for expectant moms and their partners. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now offering our Childbirth Class online from the safety of your home via Zoom. The online class will be a one-day Saturday workshop from 9 am – 3 pm and is geared for the first time mom and their partner. Parents, who have already experienced childbirth but want a refresher, are invited to attend the workshop as well. All classes are conducive to learning and sharing.
Once you register and pay, you will be sent a Zoom invitation with a link to join the class online.
