Prenatal Series (2017)

Our prenatal series is a traditional-style prenatal class. You can attend these group sessions alone or with a partner/support person. Talk to a prenatal educator, ask questions, and meet other parents-to-be. You’ll get a pregnancy and a breastfeeding booklet, as well as other handouts, to take home with you.

The cost for the prenatal series is $90, but the fee can be waived if needed. There’s no additional cost to bring your partner or support person.
