Classes & Support Groups

Maternity Info Session

Currently, all in-person classes have been canceled until further notice. To accommodate our patients, we have transitioned many of our classes and support groups online. Please click here for more information and to register. In lieu of in-person OB tours, please review this presentation for information on what to prepare for your hospital stay.

Join us for a live, online presentation and Q&A on what to expect when you come to the hospital to give birth. We’ll share information on how to prepare, what to bring to the hospital, and things you’ll need when you go home. From parking and registration through discharge, we’ll cover all the steps of your stay, including pictures of our birthing suites, mother-baby rooms, cesarean section ORs, and neonatal intensive care unit. Learn about our evidence-based maternity practices, including skin-to-skin time, quiet hours, and rooming-in, that support a family-centered birthing experience
