Childbirth Education

These classes are designed for women and couples who may feel more comfortable attending classes with others who may be facing similar life situations. Some women attending may be going into a pregnancy alone, may be very young birth moms, may not be able to afford to pay for classes, may be planning on parenting or may be placing their newborns for adoption.

Whatever your situation, you will find a caring and supportive environment to learn about pregnancy and childbirth. Feel free to attend with a friend or your partner.

Week 1 includes the car seat class. Instruction on Safe Sleep, Infant CPR and basic first aid is covered during Week 3.

Our classes are free of charge. Those who attend will earn vouchers which can be used in our Beginnings Boutique to acquire needed maternity, baby and personal items.

Upcoming classes:

  • Winter 2017: February 7, 14, 21 and 28
  • Spring 2017: April 4, 11, 18 and 25
