Can someone attend class with me?

We suggest that you bring a partner, relative, or friend to class with you. It is best to chose someone who you trust and who will be providing support for you during labor or after the baby is born.

How much do classes cost?

The cost of each class is listed on the page that describes the class. We will bill your insurance company (expect for Big Brother Big Sister, Cloth Diapering & Babywearing, and Infant & Child CPR classes). Most Medical Assistance plans do cover most classes. If your insurance does not cover classes, then you may receive a bill for the class. Please call the Childbirth Education office at 612-873-BABY (2229) if you have questions about the cost.

If I take the Childbirth Preparation Express class, should I also take the Breastfeeding and Newborn Care class?

Yes, we recommend that you sign up for the Breastfeeding and Newborn Care class. These topics are NOT covered in the English Express class.

Where are the classes located?

Class locations are typically at the hospital or Whittier Clinic in South Minneapolis. This varies by class type and may change. Always refer to your reminder letter for the final location.
