Once you have registered you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not get this email, please check your spam or junk folder. Our confirmation email sometimes gets sent there.

Can I bring someone with me? 

Yes, you may bring one guest with you. Your significant other or your support person is welcome to join you in class. Please note, Your First 48 Hours class is not appropriate for children. If you are nursing a baby, you are welcome to bring your baby to the Mommy Group. 

Do I have to register in advance to attend the class?

Yes, you do need to register for Your First 48 Hours class because we want to make sure we have enough class materials for all the moms who join us. 

No registration is needed for the Mommy Group.

Do I have to attend a maternity class?

No. This free class is not required. We recommend it for women in their last three months of pregnancy. In it, we talk about the tests we routinely give newborns, family support, your body’s recovery after baby is born, and breastfeeding. 

Will a tour be included with the class?  

No, but we do offer maternity tours. See our private maternity rooms, meet the team, and learn what makes having your baby here special. Sign up for one of our Maternity Tours.

We look forward to meeting you!
