Maternity classes

Join us for "Your First 48 Hours: What Happens After You Deliver." This free class explains what to expect during the first days after baby is born and helps you prepare for your stay. We offer an English and a Spanish class. To sign up, use the buttons in the form below to select a class. 

If you already came to a tour you are still welcome to join the class.

Please arrive to the class 15 minutes early so you have enough time to park and check in. The class starts on time and lasts about one (1) hour. Register using the buttons below. 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.
