Online Birthing Class Option
Our online childbirth class is ideal for those expectant parents who can’t attend an on-site childbirth class due to work schedules, time constraints, or medical conditions. The eight-chapter program is an interactive, web-based class that uses videos, personal birth stories, animations, activities, and games to teach all the essential information parents need to know to prepare for their birth. Participants can take the chapters at their own pace over a 90 day period, with the entire class taking approximately 4-5 hours.
