Our prenatal education classes are structured to prepare expectant parents for childbirth and are taught by certified childbirth educators.
Each session includes three classes and are recommended to be taken during the last trimester of your pregnancy. A one-time fee of $25 covers the costs of materials presented at the class, and can be conveniently paid online using the payment form on the next screen. Payment must be received prior to your class session.
(Note: If you have already registered for a class you do not need to register again simply visit Prenatal Class Payment Option Only to pay for the class ahead of time.)
If you need assistance with payment for the class, please choose that option and someone will contact you within 3 business days, once you've finished registration below.
