Childbirth Education

Childbirth classes help you prepare for labor and delivery. With knowledge comes confidence. You know what to expect and how to get ready. Classes are a good way to get your partner involved, too, and learn how to work as a team.

Our certified childbirth educators teach many different courses throughout the year. They include:
