Private Classes Sometimes circumstances prohibit a family-to-be from taking regular birth or baby prep classes: scheduling conflicts or a complicated pregnancy requiring bed rest, for example. Some parents just prefer class in a more private setting. No situation should prevent the family from being educated about their upcoming birth and arrival of their baby. Private sessions may be the solution. We do our best to meet the needs of everyone in our community, but can not always fulfill requests for private classes due to instructor availability and time constraints.
Group Classes Group classes are held on preselected dates and times. When you sign up for group classes you will receive your education in a group setting with other participants. Group class sizes are kept small to ensure a comfortable setting and allow time for individual help and attention as needed. In a group class individuals will receive benefits like group conversations and making friendships.
