Pregnancy Care Classes
While we’re not able to offer in-person classes at this time, we encourage you to take one of our online classes from the comfort and safety of your own home. These online classes provide the knowledge, skills and confidence you need as you prepare for the most exciting and joyful, yet overwhelming, time in your life. The interactive content includes real stories from parents and quizzes to test your knowledge. These recorded classes can be taken at your pace and accessed for nine months.
Once you purchase an online class, we’ll email a link with instructions on how to access your class. Please allow 2-3 business days to receive your link.
