Childbirth Education - How To Register

Registration for Childbirth and Parenthood Classes:

It is recommended that you take Childbirth classes during the 7th and 8th month of your pregnancy (any series should end about this time as well).   

Classes are high in demand and fill up quickly so please make sure to register ahead of time during your first trimester or as early as classes are posted in the Calendar of Events.

Please be advised, no drop-ins. Due to the seat limitations for each class, we will only accept registered participants.On-line registration through our website is required for all classes and tours.
